Thank a Teacher!

Teachers influence the lives of their students in many ways, and can have a lasting impact well beyond their school years. Recent changes to classroom structures due to COVID-19 required most teachers to adapt their daily lesson plans in a very short timeframe. Our local teachers have worked tirelessly to make sure students feel as little disruption as possible. Many spoke about their concern for students beyond the classroom, including the need for meals that some students would typically receive at school during the day.

We are more grateful now for our teachers than ever before. Trident United Way would like to show teachers how valued they are in our community through a Teacher Thank-A-Thon. We will be delivering Thank You cards to teachers throughout the Tri-County area at the start of the new school year, sharing your reflections of how teachers have impacted the life of your school-aged child.



There are two ways to send a card to our teachers! Even if you didn't attend school in the area, you can still share your appreciation. Cards will be distributed to teachers at random.


1. Email Kathleen Stevens at to request a set of 25-50 cards for you and your coworkers to complete and return to TUW.


2. Submit your card electronically! Fill out your contact information below, write a short note and select a design, and your card will be delivered in our mailbag.
