Support 2021 School Supply Drive

Trident United Way realizes building a strong community means starting early with our kids.

Our Young Leaders United online school supply drive runs now through July 20.

For less than $16, an elementary student can be supplied with a backpack and about 15 essential supplies. The pandemic was tough for many families, so even one backpack can make a big difference.

Summer book drive exceeds goal

Thanks to generous community support, Trident United Way’s African American Leadership Council (AALC) distributed more than 2,000 books for summer reading to St. Stephen and E.B. Ellington Elementary Schools.

AALC surpassed its goal of 2,200 books thanks to community support and dedicated donors. The goal is to avoid the “summer slide, where students tend to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year.

Help Wanted: AmeriCorps wants you!

Coming together to help each other out is more important now than ever. Trident United Way administers the AmeriCorps program in the Tri-County and spots are open for the next term.

AmeriCorps members serve at sites where they work with people across the spectrum of need. As Family Navigators, they seek to address economic hardships and provide financial education by leveraging the unique strengths of Trident United Way and our community partners to make a difference in the lives of people.
