Pop-Up Giving (PUG)
Join us at Hunter's Ale House on Wednesday, September 26th for United Way's Pop-Up Giving (PUG) event! What's Pop-Up Giving? It's a collaborative giving event where YOU choose the winner. Your entry donation of $20 will be pooled to create a pot, United Way will then match that up to $5,000. Hear pitches from three local nonprofit organizations (Clothing INC, Isabella Community Soup Kitchen, Foster Closet of Isabella County) trying to win your vote!
PITCH-ER THIS! is a youth development competition for students in Gratiot and Isabella Counties. United Way will provide funding to the winning team(s) to help bring their idea to life. Event attendees and a panel of community leaders will vote for their favorite project. Ideas range from programs and events to technology and arts that will help people achieve their full potential through quality education, financial stability and healthy lifestyles. PITCH-ER THIS! is hosted by United Way in collaboration with CMU College of Medicine students.
