United Way of Central Iowa Now Offers “TextSupport: Central Iowa Schools” Initiative to Provide Free School District Updates and Community Resources.
United Way of Central Iowa now offers a free text message support initiative, TextSupport: Central Iowa Schools. Students, parents, caregivers, and supportive service providers of students attending school in Polk, Dallas, or Warren county school districts can sign up to receive updates about their schools and community resources via text message (standard message and data rates may apply).
TextSupport: Central Iowa Schools will send weekly customized text updates and announcements for each district to subscribers, including information on where to receive free school meals, transportation, and other critical community resources in an effort to help students focus on their education and provide awareness of organizations and programs that are available to help families meet their needs during this challenging time.
To sign up, text “CENTRAL IOWA SCHOOLS” or “CIAS” to 898211. Subscribers will then be prompted to text their county, then school district. Participants may text STOP at any time to stop receiving messages.
United Way of Central Iowa is proud to offer a unique resource during a time when there are critical and essential updates being made often. It’s our hope that TextSupport: Central Iowa Schools will be a resource to help ensure students across central Iowa, and the people who support them, are informed and can confidently navigate this unprecedented time.
