President Hatch emailed this message to faculty and staff on February 17:
Through the generosity of Wake Forest faculty, staff and retirees, I am happy to report that our 2019 campus-wide United Way effort raised $283,951 in pledges and direct gifts, with 607 donors. My thanks to all who contributed to this annual campaign. Each of these gifts – whether large or small – represents an investment in our local community that builds capacity and addresses human need, helping to build a community that allows each of us to flourish. My sincere thanks to all. I am proud of our Wake Forest community.
I especially want to recognize the leadership of the Campaign Cabinet: Co-chairs Erica Still (Dean’s Office and English Department) and Brad Shugoll (Office of Civic and Community Engagement), and members Shandra Caputo (School of Business), Denise Griggs (College Dean’s Office), Kathleen O’Rourke (Human Resources), Eric Proctor (Human Resources), Mary Pugel (President’s Office), Leigh Stanfield (Global Affairs), and John Turner (Advancement). Their time and commitment guided the campaign and they each served as spokespersons throughout our campus for the work of United Way in Winston-Salem and throughout Forsyth County.
United Way provides multiple volunteer opportunities throughout the year to support the needs of our community. If you are interested in volunteering your time or your skills, you can contact United Way of Forsyth County directly: https://www.forsythunitedway.org/resources-2/for-volunteers/.
Your interests, commitments and skills can make a difference.
Again, my thanks.
Nathan O. Hatch
