Power of Community Cards HERO

Power of Community 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 the United Way School Supply Drive a “Power of Community Card” – a note of encouragement tucked right inside their backpack.


Here is how YOU can make a meaningful difference!

Complete the form and select one of the pre-written messages provided or let these examples inspire you to write your own note of encouragement.
United Way will print the card with your first name and message on it and place it inside one of the more than 6,000 backpacks that will be distributed to K-12 students in need at this year's School Supply Drive!

Download the printable Power of Community Cards PDF to hand write your note of encouragement or have your office fill them out and return them to United Way to be distributed in backpacks during the School Supply Drive!

*Please return any printed and handwritten cards to United Way by August 1.

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
