2016 United Way Campaign Update

Dear friends and colleagues,

As Wilkes University’s United Way Campaign comes to a close, the University Staff Advisory Committee would like to provide an update to the campus community.

After raising more than $18,000 in 2015, USAC set an optimistic goal of $20,000 for 2016. Through your generous pledges on the United Way’s website and participation in the annual Taste of Wilkes event, 5K race, the Sweet Lush Cupcake Camper, and Department Trick or Treating, the University exceeded this goal and raised $22,551.02.  We sincerely thank all of you who helped reach this total.

Although the campaign ended on November 23rd, you can still pledge your donations online.  Pledges made prior to December 2nd will be eligible to be entered in raffle drawings held both by the United Way and Wilkes.  Prizes offered in the United Way’s raffle include a 2-year car lease from MotorWorld; a trip to Puerto Rico; tickets to a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins game; gift cards from McCarthy Tire Service, The Bon Ton, and Target; a two-minute shopping spree at Wegmans; and products from Proctor & Gamble, Mondelez International, and Metro Shelving. In addition to the raffle from the United Way, Wilkes will be raffling off a $75 gift card to Barnes & Noble, a $50 gift card to Wegmans, and two gift certificates to Movies 14.

Thank you, again, for your support!
