James Rabe, Kris Brewer from the United Way, and $501! – [Video]
I'll admit, it wasn't 100% awful being stuck in detention in a school desk from 10A - 5:15P last Friday. I got to meet a ton of really generous and awesome people. AND, Running Start for School gets a $501 donation. PLUS, Scotty and Ben from work brought me a cheeseburger and hot dog from the station grill-out. That was very cool. And tasty!
Running Start for School still needs your help! They didn't get enough red, blue, green, and yellow two pocket folders and wide rule, single subject note-books. If you can help out, please, pick up some and drop 'em off at the United Way.
Why do we get behind Running Start for School? Because it matters. Think back to when you were in school. The kids that didn't have the essentials to function in school always stood out, didn't they? Research has shown over and over, the better prepared you are for a desk, the more likely you are to do well.
That's what we're trying to do here. Help the United Way help others.
