Rock Hill Schools employees will participate in the district’s annual United Way of York County, SC campaign during October. Employees are encouraged to invest to the campaign where every dollar makes a direct impact in our community. In recent years, district employees have given more than $30,000 to support 26 community partners and 32 community programs. 

Investing in the United Way supports local programs that are effectively addressing the basic essential needs of individuals, families and neighbors. Any gift — large or small — can help the United Way reach its $1.5 million goal and allow the organization to:

  • going to meet local needs. Your dollars stay local to meet local needs
  • addressing the most pressing needs in our community
  • supporting agencies that are financially sound and vetted by experts
  • being used to support families and individuals with multiple needs
  • reducing the fundraising costs of funded agencies
  • making the greatest difference for your neighbors in need

“The challenges that we face as a community are significant.  At United Way, we are focused on impacting the health, education, financial stability, and basic needs of our York County residents.  Our partnership with Rock Hill Schools demonstrates their commitment to engage in meaningful change.  Rock Hill Schools’ support will assist in building a strong foundation for students to fulfill their learning potential and supporting individuals through access to job training and higher education, improving access to healthcare and healthy lifestyles, while we promote financial stability efforts,” said Rebecca Melton, President of United Way of York County, SC. 

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living United means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working to-gether to create a brighter future.
