Mission

Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health, wellness, and fitness of communities, thousands of people at a time.

 

Thanks to HyVee located at 7151 Stacy Lane who donated $1.00 to us during the month of December 2019 for each red My Heart Reusable Bag that was purchased.  A special thanks to all who bought a bag in support of our community health efforts! 

 
In 2020, you can actually buy a My Heart Bag all year round at any HyVee location and designate the Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln to receive a portion of the proceeds. Here's how:

  • Purchase the $2.50 red My Heart Reusable Bag at any Hy-Vee location.
  • Turn the Giving Tag (attached to the bag) over to the back side and scratch off to reveal your unique code.  
  • Visit MyHy-VeeCause.com within 7 days of purchase and submit your code to select Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln as the recipient of the $1 donation.
