CHADRON - Farm Credit Services of America has awarded United Way of Western Nebraska serving Box Butte and Dawes Counties a $1,750 grant to support its 2019 Day of Caring meal packaging event on Oct 2nd at the Assumption Arena in Chadron..

       United Way area coordinator Karen Benzel says about 60 volunteers will come together on that one day to package some 20,000 meals for food insecure children, youth, families and adults in Dawes and Box Butte Counties.

       Benzel says it should take about 2 hours to package the meals, which will then be distributed that afternoon to backpack programs, food pantries and soup kitchens in Alliance, Chadron, Crawford and Hemingford.

       Those who'd like to volunteer for or contribute to the Day of Caring can call Benzel at  308-763-8031 or by going online at unitedwayofwesternnebraska.com.
