United Way campaign still shy of goal
Published on November 28 2012
With 85 per cent of the money raised to meet Brock’s United Way campaign goal, Diana Panter is confident the University will reach its $120,000 target.
The staff campaign chair isn’t so sure it will happen by the drive’s official close on Friday.
Still, with a few days left in the campaign, Panter and her committee have plans to reach out to that great untapped source of donations: procrastinators.
“We’re closer. We just have to reconnect with the people who save their donations to the last minute,” Panter said.
So far, about $102,000 has been raised since the campaign kicked off Oct. 16 with the Souper Star Lunch that saw faculty deans go bowl to bowl in a competition for the best soup.
