Olympia School District’s annual United Way giving campaign launched on November 2 and runs through Monday, November 30. This year all pledges should be submitted online.
United Way is a national organization that provides a multitude of services to thousands of people right here in the Olympia community, including many of the students and families served by the school district.
Donations through the United Way support a variety of organizations. In past years, United Way has supported organizations such as the Thurston Food Bank, Garden-Raised Bounty (GRuB), Boys & Girls Club of Thurston County and the Olympia School District Education Foundation. United Way also supports the Reading Buddy Program on an annual basis.
Mike Leonard, Director of Community Engagement, also shared that United Way of Thurston County will be providing remote learning grants to each of the Thurston County school districts, including $15,000 to OSD.
Additional details about the United Way of Thurston County can be found on its website.
If you have questions or need more information, please feel free to contact Mike Leonard at MLeonard@unitedway-thurston.org.
All online pledge forms need to be completed no later than November 29.
