  • United Way is asking for donations of college T-shirts from throughout the U.S. and beyond as part of its Big Idea, an initiative to ensure that all 1,200 sixth-graders in Jackson County graduate from high school on time in 2020.
    "One T-shirt for each sixth-grader from colleges in the U.S. and around the world will help them believe that college is possible," according to a United Way flier.
    T-shirts in adult sizes small to double extra-large are requested by May 24 and may be sent to United Way of Jackson County, 769 Spring St., Medford.
    "We've found from some of our volunteers that you can call your favorite school's admissions office and ask them to send three shirts to United Way," Executive Director Dee Anne Everson said in an email.
    For more information, call the United Way office at 541-773-5339.
