Ensuring that all students have someone to help them carry those heavy bags is no easy task, because it isn’t always just about supporting the student; it is also about helping their family and community navigate these issues too.
United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County is not tackling this issue alone. In fact, we are clear that no single individual or organization can accomplish wide-scale community change by themselves. Instead, United Way is serving as the lead coordinator, the backbone organization, to a group of organizations that are all committed to the same thing: student and family success.
We need your support.
Below are a few ways you can help us move this work forward in four school districts: Asheville, Enka, Erwin and Owen. Fill out this interest form and Ben Moser will be in touch to discuss how your support can help move this work forward.
