United Way Campaign Hits Goal, Earns Exceptional Service Award

Having wrapped up the 2004 UBC United Way Campaign, committee members are looking back on the campaign and marveling at success.

“We’ve had an excellent campaign in so many ways,” says Stan Auerbach, the 2004 Campaign Chair. “This year’s campaign saw 30 special events, nearly 50 awareness-raising presentations to units across campus and over 200 faculty, staff and student volunteers.”

“The campaign reached our goal of $525,000 for the 400 programs and services that United Way supports in our communities,” says Auerbach. “A big thank you to all the donors, volunteers, and community members who supported this campaign and made it a success!”

At United Way’s Community Spirit Awards on Jan. 14, UBC was awarded with an Exceptional Service Award in Organizational Support.

“UBC has a long-standing relationship with United Way,” says Eilis Courtney, director of UBC Ceremonies and Senior Volunteer for the campaign. “We have been involved not only by running an annual campaign, but also by supporting the Loaned Representative program, hosting the annual United Way Leadership Recognition Reception and participating in the Days of Caring initiative. We were thrilled to receive the award and look forward to continuing to partner with United Way.”
