Encouragement Cards

Help Encourage Kids to Succeed on their First Day of School! 

Do you remember a time you received a note from someone that inspired you? Here at United Way of Cass-Clay, we know that positive peer interactions encourage greater growth in child and youth development areas such as self-management, interpersonal skills, and positive mindsets.

Our goal is to give each student that receives school supplies this year at our School Supply Drive a “United Way Encouragement Card” – a note meant to inspire, support and cheer them on to success. These Encouragement Cards will be tucked right inside their backpack.

Here is how YOU can make a meaningful difference!

Download the printable United Way Encouragement Card PDF and print as many cards as you would like to complete.  Handwrite a note of encouragement or inspiration to a local student in our community. This is a great activity for a group of friends or employees in your office, or even your entire team.  Note that the Encouragement Cards will be provided to students in grades Kindergarten through twelve. 

Once your cards have been written, please deliver the cards to the United Way of Cass-Clay office by July 31.  United Way will place your Encouragement Cards inside one of the thousands of backpacks that will be distributed to K-12 students in need at this year's School Supply Drive!


Further increase your impact! Would you like to make a gift to the United Way School Supply Drive? $20 will provide one backpack and school supplies for a local student in need. Click here to give online
