Today is the kickoff of our United Way Drive for 2010. The campaign runs for two weeks – through November 12 and our goal is $61,000. We know it is another gloomy year economically so we have kept to virtually the same goal for the last few years. One way we could meet the goal more easily is to encourage more to share the load. Our participation rate is 27%, so if we could get a few more folks to contribute, it would help us all.
Watch for one of our many campaign captains to contact you this week. We are fortunate to have so many volunteering to help cover our ever-expanding campuses. They have answers for your questions, plus literature and forms. You can also watch for more information here in GRCC Today about the auction, contests and other fun activities planned to help us meet our goal and have some fun doing it.
One way to give is copies of the cookbook put together for last years GRCC United Way Campaign that are available again this year. This cookbook has approximately 150 recipes contributed by GRCC employees. Each cookbook is $10 and make great holiday gifts.
Contact Liz Timmer if you would like to purchase a copy. All proceeds from the sale of the cookbooks goes to The Heart of West Michigan United Way.
