Mount Union College Surpasses United Way Goal for 2008

November 28, 2007

Mount Union College has successfully reached and surpassed its 2008 United Way campaign goal, originally set at $18,500.

As of November 20, 2007, the faculty and staff of Mount Union have pledged a total of $20,000. This represents a 25% increase over the 2007 total of $16,000.

'Over the years, we've become more aggressive about getting our goals met, especially since Dr. Giese became president of the College,' said Andrew Boothe, manager of human resources and payroll.

The College held three kick-off breakfasts with speakers from several agencies supported by United Way. They shared how the dollars raised through United Way help them operate.

'Our faculty and staff have truly stepped up and shown that Mount Union College is a true leader in our community,' said Boothe.

In addition to supporting United Way financially, many faculty and staff members also serve as volunteers in the community as well as board members for various United Way funded organizations.

Not only was the $20,000 pledge total a new record for the College, a record-breaking 98 employees made pledges to United Way for 2008.
