A Special Message From Our Campaign Coordinator
It is my honor and privilege again to not only serve as the United Way coordinator for Aiken County Public Schools, but also as the Education Chair for the United Way of Aiken County.
This year's campaign theme is centered around the Disney classic film "Aladdin" and providing "A Whole New World" of support for those in need right here in our community.
Beginning Friday, September 17, 2021, and continuing through Friday, October 29, 2021, we will fight for the well-being of young people and families in need across Aiken County.
A whole new world. That's something to think about.
The climate and culture in which we live does not often focus on helping others, or even being kind, but rather the satisfaction of getting what we want right now no matter the cost or collateral damage to others.
This campaign is an opportunity to stand up and display another side of humanity. This campaign is an opportunity for our community to stand up and cast off the robe of selfishness, and rather, place a robe of love and charity around a brother or sister who may be going through the most difficult time in their life right now. While may be at a football game, or out to eat, or even watching a movie, others may have no electricity in their home, no health insurance to keep their children well, or no food in the refrigerator. There are children in our community who have been traumatized and others who do not know where they will spend the night tonight.
We can do something about that. Partnering with the United Way of Aiken County, we can stand in the gap for those members of our community who cannot stand up for themselves.
Won't you join us by making a donation of whatever amount you are able to this year's campaign?
Let's all LIVE AND GIVE UNITED! THANK YOU!
ACPSD Director of Communications and Community Partnerships
