United Way News: January 2018

Have 2 minutes? Thank a teacher from your smartphone!

“For teachers, there are good days and bad days,” says Diane Voit, community volunteer and retired Waukesha North High School teacher. “Receiving a simple note of moral support, saying ‘what you are doing is really worthwhile,’ can make it a good day.”

At United Way, we are starting 2018 off right: celebrating the teachers that work passionately and tirelessly to ensure our community’s children are successful.

Have 2 minutes? United Way has a new software program that helps you write a quick note of encouragement to a teacher without leaving your desk (or couch...).

Notes will be distributed to local teachers to help them start their second semester on a high note!

Volunteering not only contributes to good physical health as we age, but also good mental health and happiness as well!

Follow United Way on Facebook and Twitter to hear about more opportunities to celebrate and support our teachers.
