It’s the Season of Giving: Anoka-Hennepin’s Employee Giving Campaign is Underway

(11/08/19) Anoka-Hennepin’s annual employee giving campaign has begun, and it continues through Friday, Nov. 15. The campaign is an opportunity for all district employees to make tax deductible, charitable donations via check or payroll deduction.

Why should you give? Consider Wyatt’s Story…

Wyatt Needs Your Help! Please Give Now for Wyatt, and/or for the trees and for our communities

Wyatt is a fourth grader who struggles to focus at school. His home life is a bit rough and Wyatt doesn’t know how to deal with his family’s financial instability and the stress of divorcing parents. As a result, Wyatt often comes to school unprepared, uninterested and distracted.

Your gift today will provide calming tools to help Wyatt learn how to self-regulate and focus so he can learn. Your donation will put tools like breathing balls, fidgets, coloring books, and calming CDs and headphones in the hands of students like Wyatt.

Today, more students like Wyatt are coming to school with more social and emotional needs than ever before. Teachers and staff across the district at all levels have asked for help in putting calming tools in their buildings and classrooms so students like Wyatt can learn how to self-regulate and focus. Your gift today will provide relief and support for students like Wyatt.

Because so many students need calming tools to help them focus, for every donor to AHEF that begins giving or increases their giving through bi-weekly payroll deductions, AHEF will give their building $10 for calming tools this year.

You care about kids and you value education. This is why you do what you do. Please give now to help kids like Wyatt!
