The amazing amount of work the Swift Current United Way does with a small staff and dedicated Board of Directors makes huge impact on improving the quality of life for many members of our community, including our clients.

We sincerely thank the United Way staff and volunteers for all their hard work and we thank those who donate "the United Way" for thinking of those in need.

2nd Annual Southwest Scavenger Quest
Saturday April 20, 2013 was the date for the 2nd Annual Southwest Scavenger Quest Fundraiser.

This year seven eager teams, with participants from 12-65+, braved the chilly weather to complete five compulsory tasks and dozens of optional ones, all over the city. In the end, over $7000 was raised in pledges and sponsorship with all net proceeds going to support Southwest Crisis Services programming.

This year's victors were "Team Anonymous", with second place going to "Team Smarter" and third place being taken by the "Sasktel High-Speed Hers". Congratulations to all the teams who "Quested" this year, and thank you to all those who pledged them.

Everyone enjoyed a meal after the race thanks to sponsor Boston Pizza and were treated to music from Dave Cyca, Mark Penner and Donovan Epp.

Our thanks to all our sponsors, including Days Inn, Fine Furniture Oasis, MNP, Smart Flowers and Pioneer Co-op. We also thank those who donated items to the prize pool: JB's Fish, Houston Pizza, Swift Current Little Theatre, St.Johns Ambulance and Leanne Eichel. And we also greatly appreciate the support of all of our volunteers and the Fire Department of Swift Current for hosting an event.

One Billion Rising
We had a great turnout of about 80 women, children and men for our 'RISING' on February 14, 2013. Over a dozen mostly-local artists contributed pieces of art, writing, dance, and music on the issue of violence against women for a very powerful and moving evening! Big thanks to Christine Ciona for leading us, to the staffs of the Art Gallery and Library for moving everything and putting in a lot of time to help us, to all the artists and volunteers and to everyone who came out. Swift Current was one of 165 communities in Canada to have an event for One Billion Rising.
