The Campus Division of the United Way of Lee County is joining forces with other division teams throughout the county to ensure that the agencies supported by United Way have the necessary resources to reach out to those in need in our community. The campus goal this year is $140,000! Your participation is important, and no gift is too small! Please consider being a part of the Auburn team and make a contribution today! Campus division coordinators have been designated to distribute pledge cards. If you do not receive a card and would like to contribute, please call the United Way office at 745-5540.
The theme for the campaign this year is "The Power of We." Together, we can make a significant difference in the quality of life for those in need in our community. Even small contributions can make a huge difference. An example of this is the fact that a $1 contribution can provide roughly $40 worth of grocery products at retail prices, or seven meals, because of the ability of our local food bank, a United Way Agency, to leverage the dollars to maximum advantage.
We will again this year be encouraging friendly competition among the units on campus by having prize drawings every two weeks. The winners will be selected at random from the unit with the highest participation rate. Prizes include nice framed artwork, memorabilia from the Athletic Department and a grand prize provided by AUHCC of a one night's stay and brunch for two. Employees can stay abreast of our giving and prize winners, along with other information about the United Way, by checking this website.
