Univest Corporation Launches Caring for Kids Giveaway; Local Nonprofit Will Win $1000

SOUDERTON, Pa., June 6, 2013 - As part of its Committed to Local philanthropic giving program, Univest Corporation hosts a contest four times each year through its Facebook page in which it asks customers and community members to nominate local nonprofits that deserve financial assistance.  The latest $1,000 contest - the Caring for Kids Giveaway - was announced today.  Through the Caring for Kids Giveaway, Univest is looking for a deserving, local, nonprofit organization that provides summer youth enrichment programs. Organizations that would qualify include libraries for their summer reading programs, YMCAs or Boys and Girls Clubs for their various camps, sports organizations and band camps, just to name a few.  Any nonprofit organization that educates and enriches the children in our community during the summer months can be nominated.   


Here's how the contest works:

  • Identify a local, nonprofit organization that deserves the $1,000 donation.
  • The nonprofit organization with the most posts at the end of the contest will be the winner.

The contest launches on June 10, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. and will run through June 24, 2013 at 8:00 a.m.  To be eligible to win the $1,000, the nonprofit group must be a registered 501 (c) (3) organization that aligns with the Univest giving guidelines and operates somewhere in the Univest service area of Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties and the Lehigh Valley. We encourage you to be an advocate and nominate your favorite local, nonprofit organization for a chance to win $1,000.
