U of A United Way Needs Volunteers

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas United Way committee is gearing up for the 84th annual campus fundraising campaign in October.

Each year the U of A campus community comes together to support the United Way – donating thousands of dollars to help thousands of children living in poverty in Northwest Arkansas.

The campaign committee is calling out for volunteers help co-ordinate fund raising efforts in all of the colleges, schools and units at the U of A.

“If you believe in the United Way, if you have donated in the past, please join us this year and help get more people participating in this campaign than ever  before,” said Chris McCoy, campaign chair.

If you’re interested in volunteering as a campus representative, email Rachel Gerner, campaign coordinator for the U of A United Way, at rgerner@uark.edu.
