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.
