United Way campaign extended to today

UnitedWaylogo_squareThe deadline for Marshall University’s United Way campaign has been extended until today, Nov. 20.

United Way of the River Cities’ goal is to change 30,000 lives in the region.  To do so, the organization needs to raise $1.2 million.

“As one of the leaders in our community, Marshall University has been a very important part of United Way’s work,” said Laura Gilliam, executive director of the organization. “Thousands of people in our region have received help because of the university’s support.  We count on faculty, staff and students every year to make our fundraising campaign successful. Without their support, our community wouldn’t be the same.”

Faculty and staff can  return their completed investor pledge forms to the Marshall Recreation Center for a free day pass; to an individual’s departmental office; or to Dean Michael Prewitt via campus mail at Prichard Hall 224 or by faxing 304-696-6739. Pledge forms can be downloaded at http://www.marshall.edu/ucomm/files/web/UnitedWayMarshallPledgeForm_2013.pdf.
