History in the making…
United Way of Anderson County launched its first ever United Way Campaign in Powdersville on Tuesday, November 27th. A group of community leaders gathered to make plans for raising $100,000. These funds raised in the Anderson School District 1 geographic area will be used for programs for children and youth with a priority of funding for Camp iRock, a summer reading program with a “whole lot of fun”!
Camp iRock will be a partnership with the United Way of Anderson County, the Powdersville YMCA and Anderson School District 1 with an ultimate goal that every child will leave 3rd grade reading on grade level.
United Way leaders were joined at the kick-off by business leaders, leaders in education and government leaders. These leaders are ready to enthusiastically work to meet the fundraising goal to brighten the future of children and youth in Powdersville, West Pelzer, Pelzer and Williamston!
