Catasauqua Area School District United Way Campaign 2018

United Way   Our future is UNITED –Welcome to the 2018 United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley campaign!

Please consider joining me, and give today for a brighter tomorrow.  Please CLICK HERE to complete your 2018-2019 Pledge Form. Once completed, return your pledge form to Mindy Redline no later than December 4, 2018.

I am proud to personally support this outstanding community partner and hope you’ll join me. Every day, United Way and its partner agencies work to address the root causes of our community’s greatest challenges and impact the lives of more than 60,000 local students, families, and seniors each year. In fact, 80 percent of United Way’s investments support education. As a community, we’ve made great progress, but the needs continue:

  • One in three third-graders aren’t reading on grade level.
  • 32,000 seniors can’t meet their basic, daily needs.
  • Hunger affects one in ten people in the Lehigh Valley. One in four of them is a child.
  • And the demand for emergency services and housing assistance is growing.

For as little as 27 cents a day, your donation will make a difference. When you give to United Way – whether it’s $1, $2 or $5 a week, you support Pre-K programs that allow students to enter school ready to learn, in-school services that help more students read on grade-level and food pantries that ensure our families have access to healthy and nutritious food.

Our future is NOW – I’d like to personally ask each of you to consider donating $2 a week. We’ve worked with United Way to accept donations through a payroll deduction to make giving as easy as possible for you. Completing your pledge of support only takes a few minutes and makes a lifetime of impact for kids and families in need.

Maximize your impact - If you’re considering a donation, now is the time. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar through the City Center Next Century Challenge, so please help United Way maximize your impact during the 2018 campaign with this matching gift from City Center Allentown.

Additionally, everyone who donates at least $260 – or $5 per week – is entered to win one of three Incentive Prizes, including a 2018 Hyundai Accent or $10,000 courtesy of Brown-Daub Dealerships, $2,500 in GIANT Food Store gift cards and a Martin Guitar, valued at $1,699.

Sincerely, 

Robert J. Spengler
Superintendent
