When you give to the APS Employees’ United Way annual campaign, you’re helping kids, members of our extended community – and your co-workers as they improve education for the students in Albuquerque Public Schools.
Times are tight, of course, and no one knows that better than the employees of APS. But even in trying economic times, district employees contributed more than $293,000 in 2010 – easily eclipsing the record they set in 2009.
Even a small contribution makes a huge difference. And if you give to the APS Education Foundation, every dollar goes back into the classroom in the form of the Horizon Awards – grants that go to some of our best, most enterprising teachers in Fine Arts, Science/Technology/Engineering/Math programs, Middle/High School Activities and Literacy.
A year ago, APS employees helped classrooms at Bel-Air, Edward Gonzales, Sierra Vista, La Mesa, Wherry, East San Jose and Eubank elementary schools. You made a difference at Hoover, Van Buren, Desert Ridge and Kennedy Middle Schools. You were heroes at Eldorado, Volcano Vista, Albuquerque, Sandia, Valley and Atrisco Heritage Academy high schools.
Your generosity matters. And it matters deeply to your peers.
The APS/United Way campaign kicked off this week, and you’ll soon be receiving pledge forms (if you haven’t already). If you have questions, feel free to contact the APS Education Foundation at 878-6165. The campaign ends on Dec. 3.
At APS, we believe in helping kids. Thanks again!
