Campus campaign for United Way kicks into high gear in November
As the campus campaign for the United Way of Central New York moves into its second month, we are celebrating our successes and looking ahead to the final two months of the annual drive. So far, the campaign at Syracuse University has raised nearly $170,000 for our local United Way chapter, on pace to meet or surpass last year’s record-setting total of $215,000. Almost 700 employees have donated to the campaign to assist an organization that reaches one in four members of Onondaga County.
While pledging through hard-copy pledge cards and via the online ePledge system continues through the end of the year, the campaign’s events are just getting started. University employees in campus buildings and departments have been hard at work planning bake sales, raffles, craft sales and even a band competition. We urge you to support their efforts in the coming months as they continue to raise money for the campus campaign. Below is a snapshot of the events taking place in the coming weeks:
