The United Way of the Coastal Empire’s Liberty chapter has kicked off its annual drive for funds at Joseph Martin Elementary School. Principal Sue Tolley planned creative ways to encourage staff to give.
“We could not be more pleased with the commitment that Joseph Martin has made to try and increase their giving this year. Historically, they have been very generous in their time, efforts and money when it comes to serving the agencies that the United Way funds ... ,” said Josh Wheeler, a vice president with The Heritage Bank and the UW campaign co-chair.
Coordinating efforts for Joseph Martin is Teresa Goody, STEEP coordinator, and Loretta Adair.
“We have set a personal goal within the school and have events scheduled to meet that goal,” Goody said.
Events have included taping Assistant Principal Mary Guiendon to a wall. Students, staff and parents could buy a yard of tape for $1. They are also conducting a change drive. The teacher who collected the most chnage will kiss a goat.
