United Way fundraising underway

UAF Chancellor Brian Rogers has challenged the campus community to increase its giving to the United Way by 10 percent, which sets the goal at just over $70,000. The campus community is off to a good start with 92 employees participating, we’ve raised $16,705.

If you fill out a United Way form and return it to UAF HR by Nov. 12, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win prizes, including family season passes to Nanook hockey, basketball and volleyball games, or a UAF parking pass for one year.

Contact the UAF United Way co-chairs, Lael Oldmixon or Mark Oldmixon, if you’d like to have them share information with your staff.
