United Way Campaign Raises $39,000

After the fourth week of Truman’s United Way campaign, the faculty, staff and students have contributed more than $39,000, which means the University has met 71 percent of the goal.

Campaign co-chairs Brad Chambers and Debra Kerby said they are grateful to everyone who has contributed to this year’s campaign, and welcome those who prefer to make a donation at the end of the month.

They also wanted to remind people of the remarkable things that can be accomplished through each contribution.
For example: Less than $1 per week provides swimming lessons for a child who cannot afford them, or a food basket for a family; less than $2 per week buys pain medication for a terminally ill cancer patient; less than $5 per week covers the cost of 102 meals for frail and disabled homebound clients; less than $10 per week provides a manikin to teach CPR to many of the 80,000 residents in our area; and less than $25 per week offers six nights in a safehouse for a family of four.

If you have questions, or need a replacement pledge form, contact Chambers at bchamber@truman.edu or Kerby at dkerby@truman.edu.
