The United Way annual fund-raising campaign at Jefferson Lab is underway and will continue through Nov. 3. The lab's goal is 100 percent participation by staff. This is a great way to give back to our community, to help make our community a better place and to say "thank you" for the support this region has given to the lab over the years.
The United Way of the Virginia Peninsula partners with local businesses, municipalities, individuals and other non-profits in a community-wide fund-raising campaign that provides necessary resources to programs that address a broad range of community needs. Donations and pledges help fund programs that target everything from basic needs like food and shelter, to crisis and emergency response, after-school programs, affordable daycare, transportation for the elderly, job training for the disabled and much more.
The United Way pledge form is available online by copying and pasting this pdf link into your Internet browser:
or access the pdf link through the United Way webpage at: http://www.uwvp.org/give_help/index.php
Hard copy forms are available at the VARC, ARC and CEBAF Center front desks, as well as in Building 85 beginning today (Monday, Oct. 11). Please send or deliver completed forms to Joshua Cameron in CEBAF Center, Room B214, Mail Stop 12 B, by Wednesday, Nov. 3. Pledge forms may also be picked up at the United Way Raffle ticket sales table in the CEBAF Center lobby during lunch times.
The fund-raising effort kicked off Oct. 7 with the annual United Way picnic and raffle. Raffle tickets will be sold in the CEBAF Center lobby from 12-1 p.m. each work day through Oct. 27. During the JLab Oktoberfest on Oct. 27, winning tickets for two 16-gigabyte iPads will be chosen at random. Winning one prize excludes an individual from winning another prize. Results will be announced by e-mail, and the winners will have until Nov. 3 to claim their prizes. All proceeds from the raffle ticket sales and the picnic will go to the United Way.
Direct questions to Joshua Cameron, Human Resources, firstname.lastname@example.org, ext. 7628.
Please give generously; there are many in our community who have had a difficult year.
Thank you for your support.
