United Way is sponsoring a free Lunch ‘n Learn event for faculty and staff members who want to learn more about how their donations benefit local communities. The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 7 in Meeting Room A of the Hendrix Student Center.
This is an opportunity for United Way to demonstrate the merit of donating to the campaign and to thank those who have already donated.
Information on the actions and efforts of the Anderson, Greenville, Oconee and Pickens United Ways will be available. Come learn how your United Way donations are addressing the needs of people in your backyard while enjoying a free, light lunch.
To attend, RSVP by Nov. 2 to Leslie Doss at 656-4238 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lee’s #RockYourSocks4UW challenge
Monte Lee, Clemson’s head baseball coach and 2018 United Way campaign chair, has challenged first-time donors to donate $4 per paycheck and previous donors to add $4 per paycheck to their previous donation amounts. Faculty and staff members who match these donation amounts will receive a pair of Clemson-themed United Way socks and an invitation to a special event hosted by Lee. The event will take place at the baseball facility from 4 until 6 p.m. Dec. 5.
