U-M's United Way campaign working to surpass goal

The University's United Way Fall Charitable Campaign is in full swing. This year's University goal is $950,000, and as of Oct. 22 the campaign has received more than $330,000 in pledges, one-third of the goal.

With a few weeks left in the campaign, University employees still have time to complete and return their donor cards. Meeting and then surpassing the goal would be a tremendous boost for the Washtenaw United Way's efforts to support the nonprofit organizations in the county that support a wide range of benefits to individuals and groups in the community, say organizers of the U-M campaign.

The University effort is led by Cynthia Wilbanks, vice president for government relations, and Michael Harrison, U-M Health System director of public relations and marketing communications.

Those in charge of the campaign note that every dollar counts, and they encourage employees to contribute. Thousands of people across the county are helping to achieve the United Way's overall goal of $8.3 million, organizers say, noting that "it is what we do together."
