United Way

Many GPTC staff have volunteered for United Way in a variety of duties including John Noel, Jennifer Cable, Sandie Noel, Rhonda Mahaffey, Clarence Fortney, etc. Please feel free to ask any questions about United Way and their funded agencies because the community need is growing every year. For example: Lawton Public Schools alone has about 430 students that are homeless currently and that number will continue to grow throughout the year. The number at the end of last school year was over 800.

United Way pledge cards are due back to Sherrie Bellamy October 24th. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated. Payroll deductions will not begin until January 2019.
