United Way Campaign Update

Dec 16, 2013

Thanks to all who have contributed thus far to Pacific's United Way campaign. We are excited to have raised a total of $99,439.11 so far, which is 83% of our $120,000 goal, though we are still only a little more than halfway to our 45% participation goal at 23%.

Although we are measuring our goal in numbers —dollars raised and percent of participation—what cannot be measured are the lives that are changed because of our generosity.
     If our gifts help to change just one life... 
          if our gifts help to create a better community... 
              if our gifts help a person help another... 
                    if our gifts turn tears into smiles... 
                         Isn't it worth it?
                              One random act of kindness can touch countless people.

Though it is a busy time of the year with finals, semester grading and holiday shopping and activities, there are great needs in our community at this time. If you have not already done so, please take time now to complete your United Way form and turn it in before you leave for the holiday break.

Remember, your contribution can be in any amount, and every bit helps nonprofits in our local Stockton community and surrounding areas! Remember, any 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization can be designated and your donation will go to that organization. If you already donate to a favorite charity, please consider making your donation through the United Way Campus Campaign. Donations can be made as a one-time gift or through a monthly pledge, and either can be made by payroll deduction.

Thanks again for all that you are doing for Pacific, the United Way, and our Community.
