Employees rally to support United Way of Thurston County

untitledOlympia School District employees generously donated more than $13,000 to the United Way of Thurston County during this year’s annual campaign. Funds raised support programs across Thurston County that help children and youth learn and succeed, promote financial stability for families and individuals and improve people’s health.

Many of the programs funded by this campaign have a direct impact on students and families in our schools. Donations help fund local nonprofit agencies such as Community Youth Services, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Garden-Raised Bounty (GRuB), Pizza Klatch, the YWCA, the South Sound Reading Foundation and many more.

Without funding from the United Way (made possible in part by all of us), many of these organizations would not be operating. Soon, OSD employees who donated at least $12 each month for 12 months will be receiving the Seahawks color-inspired Live United T-shirts. Wear them with pride; knowing the value of your generosity is making a huge difference in our community. Thank you all, and remember to Live United!
