United Way Brings 'Live United' Week to Manatee Schools


BRADENTON -- The United Way of Manatee County is kicking-off its “Live United Week” with a special volunteer opportunity to benefit a number of Manatee District Schools.

Known as Giving ‘Back to School’ Days, this volunteer effort will take place over three days – Monday, July 22; Tuesday, July 23; and Wednesday, July 24 – and it enlists enthusiastic citizens to assist in a three-day volunteer blitz to ready several schools for the opening of the new school year.

Volunteers will assist in beautification projects such as cleaning, landscaping, and organizing. It is a great time to get involved and make a difference in our schools and community.

Manatee District schools targeted for volunteer help include Mills Elementary, Rowlett Elementary, Able Elementary, Palma Sola Elementary, Wakeland Elementary, Blackburn Elementary, Bayshore Elementary and Rogers Garden Elementary.

For additional information on this community-building endeavor, please contact Doreen Ravagnani at Dravagnani@uwmc.net or call 941-748-1313.

Also during Live United Week, the United Way of Manatee County will officially launch its annual fundraising campaign with a kick-off breakfast on Thursday, July 25. The kick-off breakfast is held in conjunction with the Manatee Chamber of Commerce Coffee Club. The breakfast will be held at Renaissance on 9th, beginning at 7:30 a.m. Renaissance on 9th is located at 1816 9th St. W. in Bradenton.

Remember, when you partner with the United Way, you are joining thousands of others just like you, and that collective effort will create hope and opportunities for those who are in need in this community.
