Jamestown United Way has announced that its 2019-2020 fundraising goal is $210,000. United Way will be holding several fundraisers along with its Packet Campaign to meet that goal in our attempt to fulfill agencies' requests. Last year the goal was $200,000, which was met.

The 14 local organizations to benefit for 2019-2020 are: Alano Society, Boy Scouts, Camp Rokiwan, Community Corrections, Girl Scouts, Imagination Library, James River Transit, Most/21st Century After School, PATH, Safe Shelter, Salvation Army, SANE/SART, Senior Companion Program and The Arts Center. The United Way also has Venture Grant requests from Stutsman County Homeless Coalition, Two Rivers Activity Center and James River Medical Center Foundation.

The United Way of Jamestown/Stutsman County will be kicking off this campaign season and summer by holding a fundraiser, “PODANZA in the PARK,” to benefit the local agencies on July 20 in McElroy Park.

PODANZA in the PARK is a collection of outdoor group fitness classes that combine cardio and strength training to achieve a full body workout. The classes will be led by TRAC Instructors who donate their time and talents. The schedule of classes is: 9 a.m., Pound - Calli Stoudt, 10 a.m., Dance - Tiffany Dooley and Zumba - Lyna Marquez, and 11 a.m., Yoga - Kim Карр.

Classes are $10 per session or $25 for all three sessions and $30 includes a T-shirt. Classes are for all ages. Refreshments will be provided by Bank Forward and Cash Wise Foods. Registrations are available at Bank Forward, Two Rivers Activity Center or any United Way Board member.
