Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The Shenango Valley Urban League has had to cancel our main annual banquet fundraiser three times since the pandemic started in 2020. It would mean a lot to us to have your support as we strive to continue the work that we do in the community such as providing housing counseling, financial and budget literacy assistance, WIC, community outreach, and youth and education programming. Helping the underserved and disenfranchised is our mission and having the funding support helps us maintain a level of service that everyone deserves and should have.
