Dear JSU Faculty and Staff,
Way agencies affect so many people’s lives in positive ways, through providing
health care, through assisting during times of disaster, through providing
outlets for young people to grow, achieve, and learn through positive role
models, through programs to assist senior citizens, and through many other
important community programs. We encourage you to help make all these things
possible through your contribution to United
Way in 2005.
This year’s United Way Campaign motto is
“Committed to...what matters,” and all the United Way agencies are counting on our
financial commitments to enable them to do the many wonderful works they do.
Even the smallest gift brings big returns. Giving just $5 a month for a year
will provide seventeen home-delivered meals to an elderly or disabled person;
security in a local shelter for a mother and her children who are escaping domestic
violence; one week of after-school care for two underprivileged children at a
local youth center; one week of groceries for two families through a local food bank.
Giving is so easy for JSU
employees; your pledge can be deducted from your paycheck. You may also donate
through personal checks made out to United
Way and with cash.
Even if you pledged money to United
Way for 2004-2005, you must fill out a new pledge
form and designate an amount for the 2005-2006 campaign, or payroll will not
continue to deduct your donation.
who donate this year will receive a Thank-You card that may be used all year at
places like Applebee’s, Garfield’s,
IHOP, Strut’s, The Barn, and other places. Also, as we bring this year’s
campaign to a close, we will hold a drawing on Tuesday, November 22, at which
one lucky contributor to this year’s campaign will receive a reserved parking
space for a year. If you have already
contributed, your name will be included in the drawing. If you haven’t sent
your pledge yet, you still have time to do so.
We have personally visited many of the
agencies in our area that receive United
Way funds and have worked on the Allocations
Committee that designates those funds, and we can assure you that your money
will go to the agencies to assist them in their work. Any amount you can afford
to give will be appreciated and well used.
return faculty pledges to Gloria Horton at 115
and staff forms to Joe Whitmore at 224 Bibb Graves by November 21. If you have any questions or if you need
another pledge form, call Gloria at #5409, or Joe at 8555.
