United Way Campaign Kickoff Slated for Oct. 18


The annual Southeast Missouri State University United Way campaign will begin on Oct. 18. In 2017, Southeast students, faculty and staff contributed $27,661 to the United Way of Southeast Missouri. This rate of giving ranks the University in the top 10 among businesses in southeast Missouri for annual gifts to this vital community organization. The Southeast Missouri State University United Way Campaign shows the power of each individual and the power of our community. Your gift will make a meaningful difference to another person in need of support.

Our 2018 goal is participation – we hope that many in our campus community will choose to support the United Way. You will receive a United Way packet from someone in your department. Donations can be made by completing a pledge form or visiting http://semo.edu/unitedway/ no later than Nov. 2. Completed pledge forms should be given to department coordinators or mailed to Tammy Underwood at MS 3375.

To learn more about the 2018 campaign, plan to attend the United Way kickoff on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 10 a.m. in the University Center Program Lounge. Everyone is welcome to the kickoff event. Joining the event will be Elizabeth Shelton, executive director, of the United Way of Southeast Missouri. Light refreshments will be served.
