2014 Campaign Videos

This year's United Way campaign videos are short inspiring stories to be shown at workplace kickoff meetings, displayed on your company’s intranet, or looped and displayed in your company's lunchroom so your colleagues can view at any time. This year we have created a series of videos focused on education, income and health. Two appear below and the third (health) will be available in early September:

Mr. Hayes

EDUCATION:

An Opportunity Maker: Meet Mr. Hayes

Work Hard. Get Smart.

This is the motto Mr. Hayes, principal at Franklin D. Roosevelt Academy (CMSD investment school), ingrains in his students from the start. His infectious smile will win you over as will his devotion to the students and his commitment to their success.
