Newman University is partnering with United Way of the Plains to transform society for the better, one donation at a time.
The mission of United Way of the Plains is “to improve lives by harnessing the caring power of our community to advance the common good in south central Kansas.”
United Way is one of the world’s largest privately funded charities. It works with private, public and nonprofit partners to boost education, health resources, financial stability and to provide basic needs for those in need.
Since the Newman community kickoff meeting Nov. 3, 11 Newman employees have generated a total of $2,412 for United Way of the Plains through one-time donations and payroll deductions.
Associate Professor of English Susan Crane-Laracuente said there is still time to make a difference, and all are welcome to pledge by the deadline Monday, Nov. 21.
“I hope you will participate — no matter how small your pledge,” Crane-Laracuente said. “It makes a big difference across so many local aid agencies and programs. Plus, United Way more than double-matches it, so every dollar turns into $2.20.”
For Newman employees or Newman community members who would like to pledge, print the following form. Newman employees may submit completed forms digitally to Crane-Laracuente by emailing [email protected].
