Day of Caring operations coming in October by United Way organizations in Scotts Bluff, Box Butte and Dawes counties got a lift this week with donations.

Farm Credit Services of America awarded United Way of Western Nebraska serving Box Butte and Dawes Counties a $1750 grant for their event to package 20,000 meals for distribution in Box Butte and Dawes Counties.

The Day of Caring by United Way of Western Nebraska, which will be packaging 70,000 meals, received a $500 check from the Scottsbluff Kiwanis Club.

Both events help fight food insecurity among children, youth, families and adults by distributing the meals through backpack programs, food pantries and soup kitchens.
