United Way of Siouxland’s Women’s Power Lunch began in 2001 to focus attention on and raise funds for issues impacting Siouxland women. All proceeds from the event fund the scholarships and certification grants awarded each year to single parents in Siouxland who qualify for this assistance. To date, over $325,000 has been awarded to help single parents further their education and increase
their earning potential. Applications for the Single Parent Scholarship will be available early spring; information will be posted on the United Way of Siouxland website.
