WMS Raises funds for United Way

Students from Westlawn Middle School are making a difference in Tuscaloosa as part of the United Way’s annual Giving Campaign. During this school year, students raised $813 to support the work of the charitable organization through a variety of fundraisers including a Hat Day, Slides Day and a volleyball game between students and staff members.

 

In a special district wide celebration event November 10, Christopher Davis and Khila Corrothers presented United Way CEO Jackie Wuska with a check.

 

United Way of West Alabama strengthens education, income stability and health in our nine-county footprint by developing resources and strategic partnerships. Donations to United Way of West Alabama stay local and go directly to agencies and initiatives improving our community.

 

Students and teachers say they are proud of their contribution to the organization which supports 26 partner agencies in West Alabama.

 

The students’ contribution is part of the community-wide campaign to raise $4 million. Click more information about the United Way and the work it does in West Alabama.
