2013 Trident United Way Campaign
We officially kick-off our 2013 Trident United Way Campaign on Friday, September 13th, which is also the Trident United Way Day of Caring. This year’s Trident United Way Campaign runs from September 13th through October 11th.
In lieu of having a monetary goal this year, we are striving to have 100% participation. We are asking CCSD community members to give what they can, in any amount. This expression of full commitment will truly show our community that we practice what we preach when we say that “ALL MEANS ALL.”

Last year's Day of Caring greatly benefitted our schools and students, as hundreds of volunteers from local businesses came together to improve our schools. Through hard work, these volunteers painted hallways, tutored students, and even built a new back yard garden for one of our schools. Thank you to all of the businesses and volunteers who gave their time last year. Your continued partnership with our schools is a testament to your dedication and commitment to our community.
Last year, our organization raised and donated $133,000, exceeding our goal by several thousand dollars! Programs like Links to Success – which is now in seven of our schools – have shown positive results helping at-risk students improve their grades and behavior. The Links to Success program is one example of how the Trident United Way is helping our schools and students. Every day, the United Way is in our schools, working directly with teachers, students, and community leaders.
