For the past several years, United Way of East Central Iowa has offered campaign prizes to our donors thanks to the generous gifts from three local organizations: Whirlpool Amana, Smulekoff’s Furniture, and Hawkeye Oil. The 2013 prizes are valued at $2,500 each and awarded to three individuals in our community.
The time period has ended to be eligible to enter to win the prizes for 2013, but stay tuned because this is the third year we’ve surprised our winners on video camera receiving their surprise gift. Winners were drawn in early December and were announced winners at our campaign celebration event on Dec. 12th. You can watch the surprise videos below.
