We, at Nicholls continue to make a difference in the lives of those around us,in the communities that we help to shape, and in the region that we serve. One important way that the Nicholls community has directly improved the quality of the lives of thousands of residents in our region has been through its continued support of the United Way of South Louisiana effort.
This year’s “Nicholls, We Care” campaign officially kicked off this week at the President’s Executive Council. Al Davis and Rob Bremer have agreed to serve as Campaign Co-Chairs and they along with United Way representatives will be scheduling a series of meetings in conjunction with departmental quarterly safety meetings or staff meetings for faculty and staff to learn more about United Way.
Our campaign will run through December, at which time we hope to meet our goal of $16,000. Every dollar collected not only represents a direct investment in the people of this area but is also the most effective way of supporting a network of services that no one organization could provide alone. Please consider supporting United Way of South Louisiana. The easiest way to give is through the convenience of payroll deduction. Just a few dollars a paycheck can make all the difference.
Over the years, faculty and staff, despite these difficult economic times, have generously contributed to United Way. Because of the history of this support, Nicholls continues to be recognized as a United Way Pacesetter Institution—a designation that demonstrates once again how essential the Nicholls community is to the vitality of this area.
Remember that when we work together through United Way of South Louisiana, we can have an impact right at home.
