Faculty and staff at Cleveland Chiropractic College recently gathered for the 15th annual United Way campaign kick-off on campus. Held Nov. 3 in the Dining Hall, the festivities included a video and a short presentation by United Way officials who were on site to share the ways their organization is able help those in need. They shared stories of their success and how their work is made possible through the generosity of others.
Marcia Thomas, director of the library and media center, was the campus coordinator for the kick-off event and was hopeful that Clevelanders would help make a difference in the lives of those in need.
“United Way contributions stay local,” Thomas said. “There’s a community partnership with 150 agencies in a five-county region that focuses on helping children and teens attain their full potential; helping families and individuals achieve financial independence and stability; and providing greater access to health care and to specialized health support services.”
At the conclusion of the program, attendees enjoyed a light snack of fruit and cookies, and took part in a raffle drawing. Winners were Renee Ray, academic services, and Marla Cope and Annette Carter of the Business Office. Each won a $25 gift certificate to a local business.
