Still time to qualify for United Way prize draw

The campus campaign for United Way has topped $80,000, officials report, while waiting on a number of donors who gave last year.

“Our faculty and staff have pledged more than $71,000 so far this year, with retirees accounting for an additional $11,000,” says co-chair Sheri Lowrie. “However, there is a large group of previous supporters who have not yet sent in a donation. We are hoping to encourage them with a last big push.”

She hopes that final push will come when UWindsor employees are reminded of the incentive draw slated for the appreciation event December 4.
