Joy of Giving is theme for Thursday’s Kearney-area community giving day
KEARNEY – Give Where You Live brings people together as one community, raising important funds and awareness for Kearney-area nonprofits.
The University of Nebraska at Kearney encourages those who wish to make a difference in the lives of students to provide a gift during Thursday’s community campaign for the Kearney Community Scholarship for UNK.
A contribution of any amount will help provide the gift of academic opportunity to deserving UNK students who most need financial support. The Kearney Community Scholarship for UNK is unique in that it receives broad support from throughout the UNK community to help deserving students.
Ashley Packer of Wood River said she’s extremely grateful for the scholarships she was awarded and for the confidence it gives her to succeed at UNK.
“The scholarships I received have helped me open up to new possibilities without the stress and anxiety of worrying about financial issues,” said the business administration major. “Also, knowing that the donors who awarded me those scholarships believed in me offers a great amount of pride and determination to succeed even more.”
