The Herd Lives United
Every day, you do something important as a member of the Marshall University community. Your work contributes to the education of our students, which helps to improve our communities. Likewise, many of you do something outside of your work at Marshall that benefits our region. Perhaps you mentor a middle school student; teach an adult to read; donate food and clothing to a pantry; or help qualified individuals file their income taxes for free. Marshall University is full of caring individuals who are proud of our communities and work every day to make things a little better for someone else. You Live United!
From November 5-16 you have a chance to continue your good work. During these two weeks, you have the opportunity to contribute to United Way of the River Cities through this year’s workplace campaign. We encourage you to become a partner in United Way of the River Cities’ efforts to address critical issues in our communities. If you already donate your time and/or financial support, thank you! If not, please consider doing so.
Our Goal: $35,000
United Way of the River Cities supports programs and strategies that address problems in our region. Thirty percent of United Way dollars assure that individuals and families in crisis have food, clothing, safe shelter, and medications. Seventy percent help fund programs that are creating long-term solutions to critical issues like substance abuse, the dropout problem, lack of life preparation skills, and childhood obesity, to name a few. United Way is also involved in partnerships that are making an impact on early childhood learning, financial stability, dropout prevention, and preventing substance abuse among youth.
How Can You Help?
Your contribution to United Way reaches many people in many counties in our area. And, your dollars stay here.
Our goals are:
- To raise $35,000 to help our community
- To increase participation at Marshall
It doesn’t take much - $1.00 per paycheck can change a life.
Please join us and pledge your support. You’ll receive a pledge form in your mailbox, or you can make an online donation using the online pledge form. Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions, email@example.com.
Thank you for your generosity,
2012 Campaign Chair
