Clarkston High students will include volunteer service in Homecoming activities

CLARKSTON, WASH. –Twin County United Way and Clarkston High School (CHS) are teaming up to get local students excited about volunteering.  Friday, Oct. 20 is Clarkston High’s Student Day of Caring which provides an avenue for students to engage in brief volunteer service projects.  Incorporated with this year’s Homecoming activities, nearly 100 students have signed up to volunteer.

The Twin County United Way conducts annual Days of Caring to promote volunteerism with businesses and schools.  Student Days of Caring are intended introduce students to volunteering and encourage students to continue to volunteer throughout the year and into the future. Today, the students are giving back to the local community by participating in street clean up.  Donning red Live United T-shirts, the students will be picking up litter from streets and sidewalks near the school, in surrounding neighborhoods, down 6th Street and to Bridge Street.

New Clarkston High School principal, Doug LaMunyan, said, “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the United Way and have our students give back to our amazing community. Our school has always been supported and it is nice to provide an opportunity for our students to give back to Clarkston residents and business owners.  It’s an opportunity to show our school and community pride in an easy way – picking up litter from our streets.”

Student volunteers will gather at Clarkston High School in the student parking lot at 9:50 a.m. for street and block assignments. The volunteer project is estimated to take approximately an hour and a half.

Twin County United Way’s 2017 Giving Campaign Kicked Off This Week

Melva and Rob Prasil announced as Honorary Campaign Chairs

LEWIS-CLARK VALLEY – More than 140 business and nonprofit members attended Wednesday’s Lewis Clark Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon where the Twin County United Way kicked off its annual giving campaign to the business community.

The Twin County United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability for every person in Asotin and Nez Perce counties. Those in attendance were asked to join the fight with the campaign message: United we fight. United we win.

Melva and Rob Prasil, long-time United Way supporters, are this year’s honorary campaign chairs.  Melva shared that while they have provided volunteer service and financial support for many worthy nonprofits, United Way has always been their number one donation.  “Because as a donor,” she said, “we know our dollars will be spent addressing the most critical problems of our community.”

Many donors and supporters are first introduced to the United Way through workplace giving programs. By kicking off the campaign with Chamber members, the United Way team hopes to connect with more individuals to reach this year’s goal to engage 3,000 donors in the 2017 campaign.

Businesses interested in running an employee giving campaign are encouraged to contact the Twin County United Way at (208) 743-6594 to receive tools and support for a successful campaign.

Twin County United Way Women United Chair, Charity Rapier, said “the students are so willing to work hard and they really seem to enjoy it. I’m very impressed with the amount of work the students are able to get done in just a short time.” Lewiston High School principal, Kevin Driskill, added, “the feedback from last year – from both students volunteering and those who benefited from the volunteer service – was great.  This is a way for our students to work together and give back to the community.”

Student volunteers gathered at Lewiston High School a little after 9 a.m. to load busses and travel to service locations. Each volunteer project is estimated to take approximately two hours. Students will then return to the high school for lunch and activities through the end of the school day.

Annual Twin County United Way Golf Invitational Raised More than $12,000 to Support Local Kindergarten Readiness Efforts

For the first time in tournamentÂ’s 11 years, golfer hits a hole-in-one

LEWISTON – Golfers enjoyed a day on the course while supporting a great cause at the 11th Annual Twin County United Way Golf Invitational presented by Clearwater River Casino.  Proceeds, which exceeded $12,000, benefit the United Way’s kindergarten readiness efforts.

Bryden Canyon Golf Course was host to 23 teams of golfers who participated in the four-person scramble event which kicked off with a shotgun start at noon on Friday, June 16.  The tournament is open to all levels of play from beginners to a 56, which is what the top team scored.  Golfers of the winning foursome included Brian King, Shawn Nilsson, Mike MacDowell and Scott Baldwin.

A highlight of the tournament was a hole-in-one hit by golfer Brian King on Hole 4, a par three.  King won a 50 inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV from Stonebraker McQuary Insurance. No one walked away with an eight-day Hawaiian vacation hole-in-one prize that was up for grabs on Hole 13. Other winning golfers for the day included closest to the hole winners on the front and back nine, Brian King and Nate VonLindern respectively, longest drive winner Andy Haseneohrl, and longest putt, Dan Stellmon.  Mike MacDowell was the drawing winner of a JimmyStyx paddle board donated by Vista Outdoors.

“This is always a fun day on the course and our biggest fundraiser for our Kindergarten Boot Camps,” said Tim Barker, chair for this year’s event. Twin County United Way’s Kindergarten Boot Camp is a summertime program which helps prepare children for kindergarten in the fall. Research shows that nearly half of the children in Idaho entering kindergarten are unprepared to start school. The Kindergarten Boot Camp provides four- and five-year-old children with an inside look of what school will be like and teaches essential skills needed to be ready to enter kindergarten in the fall and be successful in school.

“We appreciate the support from the community” continued Barker, “from all the volunteers who started at 8 a.m. to the amazing after-tournament dinner fully hosted by Red Lion Hotel, it’s a team effort that makes the tournament a successful fundraiser and makes golfers want to come back each year.”  Additional sponsors included P1FCU, St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, Inland Cellular, Washington Trust Bank, Pepsi and hole sponsors.

Next year’s tournament is scheduled for Friday before Father’s Day, June 15, 2018.  To sponsor or play in next year’s tournament, contact the Twin County United Way office at (208) 743-6594.

Twin County United Way’s Annual Day of Caring Continues to Grow

More than 330 volunteers are at the ready to serve on May 12

LEWIS-CLARK VALLEY – Many hands make light work.  So just how much work can the hands of 330 volunteers do?  The Twin County United Way hopes it’s a lot. Twenty-one nonprofits have submitted more than 30 projects that need completed during the United Way’s annual Day of Caring taking place today.

Volunteers will be in action across the community on a variety of projects from litter clean up to skilled labor activities. Day of Caring Chair, Kim Casey, shared that “most of the nonprofits in our community are small. So, when the lawn needs mowed, the windows need washed or the building needs painted, these tasks either need to be contracted out – paid for with a budget stretched thin – or done by staff with time already stretched thin. We know that volunteers can do this and want to do this so that the nonprofit staff can devote their time to important program work.”  Casey added, “We encourage people to ask questions and learn more about the nonprofit they are helping.” Day of Caring is a few hours of service that connects people in the community to our nonprofits and is intended to promote volunteerism and nonprofit engagement throughout the year.

The community-wide event, presented by Regence BlueShield of Idaho, shows what can be accomplished when many are working together to make the community better. Regence president, Scott Kreiling, shared, “we’ve been supporting this volunteer event for a number of years.  Our employees want to give back where they live and work and we appreciate that whenever we partner with the United Way, we know that we are helping many worthy nonprofits in our area.” Regence, and team sponsors P1FCU and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, along with in-kind donations from ArtBeat, Fazzari’s and IdaVend, underwrite the event.

Photos and videos of the dayÂ’s activities will be shared throughout the day by Twin County United Way and volunteer teams via social media including Facebook.com/TwinCountyUW, Twitter @TwinCountyUW, and Instagram TCUW, hashtags #TCUW and #LiveUnited.
