United Way Campaign Kicks Off This Week

Check your mailbox for one of more than 13,000 pledge forms going out to employees this week.


The APS Employees/United Way campaign kicks off this week, with more than 13,000 pledge forms going to district employees’ mailboxes.

The campaign, in which employees may designate to any 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, will continue into mid-November and will feature special giveaways to individuals and schools who participate.

“The United Way campaign is just another example of how much employees in this district support the community,” said APS Superintendent Winston Brooks. “I believe in the United Way, in large part because so many of our students benefit from social and community services that could not happen without our city’s generosity.”

The APS Education Foundation operates the campaign for the district. Forms will be delivered this week to schools, and schools interested in hearing about the campaign may contact Executive Director Phill Casaus to schedule an appointment.

The Foundation puts the money it receives from the United Way campaign into the Horizon Awards – twice-a-year competitive grants that benefit APS classrooms in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), literacy, middle/high school activities and fine arts.

For more information, contact Casaus at 878-6165.
