United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties is honored to announce the 2019 Scheels’ Day of Giving on December 19, 2019 at 9am located at FilmScene, in The Chauncey building, 404 E College St, Iowa City. Scheels is generously giving $160,000 to 38 local non-profits in partnership with United Way. Gift recipients will be welcomed with a light breakfast followed by a short program to recognize each agency and their contributions to our community.

Scheels cares about the community. Each of their stores operates in a special and unique community and make it their mission to be an active member of each of those communities through outreach and volunteerism. Scheels takes pride in being able to improve the lives of others. That’s why they donate their time, energy, and resources to building up and supporting the members and organizations in their community. Their associates are passionate about this shared commitment and volunteer thousands of hours annually. They make a difference every day by getting involved in everything from United Way campaigns to community service organizations and local sports teams.

Scheels is proud to partner with United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.

“Because of our great customers who continue to shop our store, we are able to give back a portion of our profits every year to deserving community partners.  Over the course of the year, we have been able to support over 460 organizations that are all working towards making our community the best place to live.  We are proud to be able to help them as they help others.” – Paul Roesler, Scheels Community Outreach Leader
