Raytown School District raised $23,878.82 for United Way

 The Raytown School District raised $23,878.82 for its annual United Way campaign. The total donation is up 4% from last year’s donation of $22,982.

 United Way is a not-for-profit organization that funds programs designed to improve lives by promoting human potential. Over the past 4 years, Raytown Schools has donated a total of $81,989.82 to support programs and organizations that embody the United Way mission.

 “It has been great to see the district come together to support United Way,” Cathy Allie, Director of Communications and Community Relations said. “This year, our students and their families donated $12,578.30; this money will go to sponsored programs that promote education, financial stability, and healthy lives in our community.”

 Each school or work site ran its own campaign from October 1 to 17. Popular events were wacky dress and pajama days, coin wars, and doughnuts sales. Incentives such as eating lunch with a teacher or the principal were other profitable items. Robinson Elementary was recognized for having the highest per-pupil contribution of $4.72. Little Blue Elementary had the highest total donation with over $4,000 donated.
