WakeUnited campaign kickoff Sept. 29

Guest post by Allison McWilliams, chair of WakeUnited and director of mentoring and alumni personal & career developing in the Office of Personal and Career Development:

Members of the Wake Forest community are cordially invited to participate in the WakeUnited Campaign Kickoff on Tuesday, Sept. 29, in the Reynolda Hall Green Room during the Provost’s Happy Hour for faculty and staff. WakeUnited is the University’s annual campus campaign, which runs during the month of October, to benefit the United Way of Forsyth County.

The Unbroken Circle – a musical group featuring Wake Forest faculty, staff, and students – will launch the event at 4 p.m. WakeUnited chair Allison McWilliams, Provost Rogan Kersh, and President Nathan O. Hatch will have brief remarks about the campaign at 4:30 p.m. Afterward, enjoy food and beverage and fellowship with colleagues.

The United Way brings together local organizations, agencies, and individuals to work together for the benefit of all in Forsyth County.

You can donate directly to the United Way to support its community-wide efforts to:

  • Raise the local high school graduation rate
  • Decrease chronic homelessness
  • Increase financial stability
  • Increase access to health care and quality of life.

You can also give to the non-profit, human service agency of your choice through United Way of Forsyth County.

This year’s WakeUnited campaign features weekly drawings for raffle prizes and a participation competition to name the 2016 Pro Humanitate Institute/Office of Wellbeing United Way Champions.
