NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - As we approach Giving Day in North Platte, we look back on one organization in town that operates strictly on donations.

United Way’s yearly target of $200,000 is very close to being accomplished. The organization currently has received $188,000 in donations which is approximately 95% of their goal. The president of United Way Tami Timmerman Lashley say, they have seen many anonymous donors this year despite the pandemic.

United Way Mid-Plains helps to financially support 15 organizations in 16 different counties across western Nebraska. Each organization submits an application through United Way to receive funds.
