Centre community posts participation record for
United Way giving campaign
RELEASED: December 4, 2008
"The United Way Agency provides support to so many people within our community—the young and the elderly," says Kay Drake, Centre director of human resources and administrative services and coordinator of the fundraising effort on campus. "Centre always prides itself on doing things well, and it was wonderful to see our participation level at a record high this year. I hope even more people will be involved next year, either through the team baskets for the Favors Auction, pledges, Day of Caring or serving on the committee."
Four campus teams this year had a participation rate of at least 90 percent:
Facilities Management Team 1, lead by Dawn Bailey, had a participation rate of 93 percent.
Facilities Management Team 2, lead by Ruby Baker, had a participation rate of 91 percent.
