Annual United Way Campaign
Every year, at this time of the year, we start talking about the United Way organization and the work it does to support the many organizations (including ours) in the community. Many RIMSD #41 employees give to the annual United Way of the Quad Cities campaign each year (through a one time pledge or through payroll deduction) and/or commit themselves to volunteering for one of their service areas.
The biggest question we get: What does the United Way do? The United Way focuses on supporting our community in the areas of education, health and income. It supports agencies that provide programming to help children and families to overcome hardship times and build strategies for ongoing success. Last year, United Way committed to fund out-of-school programs in Rock Island-Milan. These programs are coordinated with a partnership that includes Spring Forward Learning, Martin Luther King Junior Center, Parks & Recreation, churches, etc. These programs make a difference for our students and families. As an example, a short video that was produced in 2018 that shares a success story from our District and highlights one of our schools >>
Last year, 205 of our RIMSD #41 team members contributed for a total contribution of $11,538 to the United Way campaign! That was a 33% increase over 2017! It's amazing what we can all do together!
Consider the many, many needs and give what you can to enhance the services supported by this campaign. Every dollar given will find its way to assisting someone in our local community. The needs are greater than ever.
I know we can accomplish this goal! No gift is too small. THANK YOU in advance for your consideration and giving!
