365 DAYS OF CARING SIGNATURE SITE
On Saturday, September 19, 2015, United Way mobilized volunteers to build reading corners, level books, assemble teacher toolkits, enhance student playgrounds and create outdoor educational classrooms in partnership with the Philadelphia School District. Through our Early Warning Response System, United Way partners with several schools including General George G Meade School to identify students at-risk of dropping out and connect them with appropriate interventions to get them back on track. Additionally, teachers and staff at Meade School have participated in professional development opportunities with the United Way, such as trauma informed care courses to prevent, mitigate and heal the impact of trauma on students. The volunteer activities at United Way’s 2015 Day of Caring at Meade School supplemented our work in ensuring all children have access to a quality education from cradle to career.
