Circa partnered with United Way to help the community head back to school in 2021. Since March of 2020, COVID-19 has impacted the lives of so many in our community. It has been especially challenging for those in the world of education. Over the past several months, we have seen how adaptable and resilient teachers, students, and families can be.
While our world continues with some uncertainty, there is one thing we know for sure: the need for school supplies is greater than ever. Last year, donations with United Way helped us distribute over 5,000 new backpacks filled with supplies to children in local schools.
Circa’s DEI Council took park in the United Way Backpack Coalition. Instead of Circa going the traditional route of just sending out the donation link and have everyone contribute that way, the DEI team decided it would be more fun to do a friendly company competition! Circa employees were broken up into 15 teams of 9-10 people. Each team has a leader, who will coordinate your groups contribution efforts. Every team is encouraged to name themselves as well too but of course it is not required however, if you decide to have a team name feel free to shoot me what your group came up with and I will send out another correspondence with each team’s name. The goal is to donate the as many items as possible through the Amazon wish list for United Way.
