To help incentivize this year’s campaign, United Way partnered with Tyler Automotive to provide a car challenge. Donors who give $156 (or $3 per week) are automatically entered into a drawing to win a two-year lease on a sub-compact vehicle from Tyler Automotive. For every additional $100 contributed, donors receive an additional entry into the drawing. (See below for Rules & Regulations.)
Thanks to our friends from Tyler Automotive for your generous support!
