United Way SD73 Employee Campaign
United Way SD73 Employee Campaign

At School District 73 we recognize that achieving success for all students requires a continued commitment to equity.  As a learning organization we facilitate this success through our teaching, our support for students, and our relationship with community.

We know that far too many students experience hunger, abandonment and even exploitation because of the circumstances into which they are born. Supporting community services that wrap around students living in vulnerable circumstances is one way we can ensure more of our students have a fighting chance. That is why SD 73 is  supporting the Thompson Nicola Cariboo United Way #LocalLove Campaign from November 1 until November 28.

Please consider supporting the campaign, either as a one-time donation or through an ongoing payroll deduction. Whatever your contribution,  it will make a difference to the most vulnerable in our community.

Download your pledge form and return them to the board office through interoffice.
