Teachers are our First Responders for our children. They are the ones who help the child who comes to school with duct tape around their shoes, or the child who didn’t have breakfast - or even dinner. We’re learning more how the impact of poverty upon education shows a measurable and long-lasting detrimental effect on students’ cognitive performance. Currently, our teachers are spending an average of $600 of their own money to combat the impact of poverty in their classrooms.
United Way wants every child to have the best possible chance to succeed, which is why we are proud to announce the launch of United for Classrooms. The United for Classrooms initiative gives $200 of financial assistance to each K-5 classroom in Marion, Polk and Yamhill County. These funds can be used to purchase a winter coat or new shoes for a kid whose family is in crisis, or to purchase educational tools to help kids better grasp the material and stay on grade-level.
We’re asking the community to step up, raise their hand, because we want this to be a program with lasting, measurable impact. You can help, too.
