Staff unites together for the Tulsa Area United Way
This year’s United Way campaign provided staff with a number of opportunities to support this organization through various activities and fundraising events. This year, the district raised $105,649.66. These funds will help thousands of Broken Arrow residents through organizations like Broken Arrow Neighbors and A New Leaf.
“Broken Arrow Public Schools is known as one of the top contributors from surrounding educational institutions, and that is something we should all be proud of,” said Kim Vento, Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center director and this year’s district United Way campaign chair.
In addition to individual monetary donations, school sites across the district organized fundraising activities, ranging from chili cook-offs to silent auctions, to raise funds.
“No one is ever required to give, but each year, I am amazed at peoples’ generosity,” Vento said. “Every dollar donated will improve the lives of those who are struggling within our own community. We truly are difference makers.”
