Our giving changes lives

Julian Roby

The Community Giving Campaign allows SPPS employees to donate to any charity or non-profit -- or SPPS school -- through their paychecks. It is a convenient way for SPPS employees to support the organizations that help students before they board the bus each day and after the bell rings. “We see the direct effect [of the campaign] right here at Central,” said Scott Howell, football coach at the school.

Julian Roby, who graduated from Central in 2012, attended Wiley College in Texas with the help of the United Negro College Fund. Julian is an honors biology student and hopes to study medicine. “I believe the best reward for my hard work is knowing that I made a difference in someone’s life,” Julian said.

You can make a difference in the lives of students like Julian by giving to the United Negro College Fund or any other charity through the Community Giving Campaign. Learn more at giving.spps.org and give online today.
