 Anchorage, AK -  Grab some chalk and get ready for the second annual United Way of Anchorage Chalk the Walk.

 
On August 19th, volunteers will create inspirational and encouraging notes for students outside local schools by writing messages on the sidewalk in chalk to help kick off the new school year.
 
"Imagine a place where kids really did feel that school was really, truly important and that the community really cared, if we can achieve that and change how our whole community feels about our schools and our children and the value of education, everything gets better," said June Sobocinski who is the Vice President of Education Impact at the United Way of Anchorage.
