Dear Aiken High  School Rotary Interact Hero,

Thank you so much for braving the July heat to help the United Way Stuff the Bus for Aiken County students in need of school supplies.

I know that now is your summer vacation and I very much appreciate your putting Service above Self today. As you always do.

I am proud of those of you who were able to make it.

Run United Appreciation April 2019

April 26, 2019

Dear Aiken High School Rotary Interact Heroes,

Thank you to all who helped out at Run United. Of course, we had a lot of fun, but we also helped raise much-needed funds for the United Way of Aiken County.

How will the money raised be used? The following is from the United Way of Aiken County web site:


United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.


In 2008, United Way World Wide initiated a 10-year program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:

    • Improve education, and cut the number of high school dropouts — 1.2 million students, every year — in half.
    • Help people achieve financial stability, and get 1.9 million working families — half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable — on the road to economic independence.
    • Promote healthy lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.

These goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths — a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity — we can achieve them.

I appreciate your getting up to start the day at 5:30 am to serve Aiken County residents in need. That was a kind thing to do on a Saturday morning.

As always, you guys were great and I am proud to be your sponsor.
