United Way 

Hello Titan family!  It’s that time of year again. Richards Middle School is officially launching our United Way campaign. United Way is an organization that supports multiple nonprofit organizations and gives back to children and families in our community. 

Last year, we had an amazing campaign. Teachers and staff members raised $11,719.12. It would be awesome to exceed that amount this year, but we need your help.  We can meet that goal if every family donates. We are asking for every family to donate just $10 per child. If you can’t give this amount, please donate whatever you can. No amount is too small, and every amount is appreciated. 

Donations can be given using the MyPaymentsPlus App or by logging in to

When you log in, click on events and activities and select United Way. 

Please join us in giving this year. So many people will be blessed by your generosity.
