Each year staff members of the Bartlesville Public Schools voluntarily contribute to the Bartlesville Regional United Way. That organization works to improve the health, education, and financial stability of people in the area, partnering with food service charities, in-school and after-school care programs, and services for mental health, other healthcare, financial literacy, seniors, and those in crisis.
Dianne Martinez, the school district's Executive Director of Special Projects, spearheaded the district drive this year, which raised $8,915. Fun trophies were created and donated for the district campaign by Josh Waddell of 3 Bulls Upcycling. A trophy adorned with a butterfly will go to the school with the highest donations, and this year that was Hoover Elementary School, which donated $1,586. A trophy with a flower is at the Education Service Center, which raised $2,630.
Bartlesville Public Schools appreciates the many services that the Bartlesville Regional United Way and its partner agencies provide to its patrons.
