At United Way, we know that obtaining necessary supplies before each school year is a familiar struggle too many children in Erie County face. Students cannot succeed in school without the proper tools. And, we cannot expect our teachers to provide when there is need.
That is why United Way is committed to helping students succeed and become excited to enter the school year ready to learn AND we need YOUR help! TWO WAYS TO GET INVOLVED...
1. Sponsor a Student: bit.ly/
You can sponsor one or more Erie County students with a $20 per child donation. United Way of Erie County will purchase the backpack and appropriate supplies for you. Make your donation online today!
2. Volunteer: WE NEED YOU TO HELP PACK SUPPLIES AUGUST 1 The Pack-A-Thon will take place Thursday, August 1 from 2pm - 4pm at Zurn Industries, LLC. Volunteers are needed and group teams are welcome! Please contact Gina Schaefer for additional information via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at (814) 456-2937 ext. 221. And, thanks to event sponsor CA Curtze Co for making it possible for us to provide 1,500 backpacks for students this year!
Please note: Backpacks will be distributed to partnering community schools within Erie County and will be given to students based on need at the discretion of each participating school.
