Univest Awards $5,000 to Off the Streets Lancaster
as Winner of Tenth Annual Caring for Community Giveaway
January 10, 2022 - Univest Financial recently announced Off the Streets Lancaster as the winner of its tenth annual Caring for Community Giveaway, a contest that awards $5,000 to a local, nonprofit organization. The mission of Off the Streets Lancaster is to help families and individuals in Lancaster, Pa. get “off the streets” and into permanent housing.
The nonprofit organization’s all-volunteer team works with local service agencies to identify individuals and families that have the financial means to pay monthly rent but need assistance with up-front money for a security deposit, which is often the only thing preventing someone from being housed. In addition, Off The Streets Lancaster helps provide furniture and household items to help settle them into their new home.
Nonprofit groups were nominated for the $5,000 donation by the public through Univest’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn pages. Off the Street Lancaster was randomly selected from more than 3,300 entries on behalf of 165 local, nonprofit organizations. Previous winners of the Caring for Community Giveaway were A Moment of Magic’s Temple University Chapter, Kisses for Kyle Foundation, Quakertown Community Outreach, Logan’s Heroes Animal Rescue, Hope Against Heroin, St. Isidore School, The Grannie Project, Vets for Vets and the Bucks County SPCA.
The contest launched December 1, 2021 and entries were accepted through December 31, 2021. To be eligible to win the $5,000, the nonprofit group had to be a registered 501 (c) (3) organization that operates within Univest’s service area.
