On October 1st the Chancellor officially "kicked-off" the 2015 United Way Campaign and you will hear from the PVCC United Way Campaign Team about our local efforts to reach our goal to raise $17,000.
I know first-hand that United Way is making a difference in Maricopa County and making a difference in our students' lives - seen through my personal engagement in several United Way programs: weekend food packing events benefiting hungry school children and Project Connect for the homeless.
PVCC has identified Project Connect as an employee service learning opportunity. Valley of the Sun United Way started Project Connect to bring together a broad range of vital health and human services to a single accessible location. See first-hand your contributions at work. Register via HRMS
One specific goal this year is to welcome new donors to United Way. Please remember that you can support the PVCC ACE program through UW. Additionally, contributions to selected United Way Programs may allow you to take advantage of the Arizona Credit for Donations made to qualifying charitable organizations like "Helping the Working Poor Fund."
It's so easy to donate via "online giving". Pledging information and instructions are online at maricopa.edu/unites-for-united-way
