We’re coming up on the end of the United Way/Employee Contribution Campaign (Friday, November 18 is the deadline!) and I’m making a plea to everyone who hasn’t yet donated…please give something! Every donation counts.
If you give to the United Way, you’ll be helping agencies like the Salvation Army who provide food (i.e. turkey) to those who are in need. Especially now and during the holidays, the Salvation Army comes through for families who are being forced to pay the heating bill or buy food. Our donations make a real difference for the Salvation Army and other United Way agencies—and for families faced with making these choices. Please keep them in mind when you’re mulling over your pledge form. Every donation counts.
Or if you decide you’d like to give to the GSH Foundation, you’ll be helping bring our new and improved dining experience to life. In fact, the space is ready and waiting for our help!
The gracious donations of our staff will help make our cafeteria a place that now we only wish about it. You know, like when you go somewhere and say, “I wish our cafeteria was as nice as that.” With your help, it can be—it will be. Every donation counts.
Our professions are giving ones—we give of ourselves to help those who are sick or injured, or we support our colleagues in this work. It’s a natural extension of who we are and what we do to give, and I hope that you will consider a donation to one or both of these campaigns. You can make a one-time donation, designate an amount to come out of each paycheck, or even donate your PTO to be converted to a cash value for the GSH Foundation portion of the campaign. I’m not exaggerating at all when I say every donation—big and small—counts.
In case you need some extra incentive to donate, there are some great weekly prizes for donors and a special drawing for first-time givers. There’s also a GRAND PRIZE flat-screen plasma TV that will go to one lucky donor at the end of the campaign. Our campaign ends THIS FRIDAY, November 18! Every donation counts.
Please, if you haven’t given it a lot of thought, or if you haven’t had time, take a moment and give today. I’d like to see everyone participate in this campaign in some way. It is not the amount you give, but giving something that is important. My heartfelt thanks go to those who have already made their donations. Right now, we’re behind the pace we set last year, both in the number of participants and the amount given. I know we can do better. Please join all Good Samaritans and give thanks for what you have...
Every donation counts!
