Surge needed as United Way Campaign ends on Nov. 20
With only a few days left, the OLLU Employee United Way Campaign needs a strong surge to match last year’s participation and giving. In 2019, OLLU recorded a 70-percent participation rate and gave $27,591.76. The average gift was $65.
The current campaign status is at 33 percent participation with $22,124.08 in donations.
The donations that are made go right back into Bexar County/San Antonio neighborhoods, and more specifically, into the agencies chosen by donors.
Contributions support more than 80 community agencies and focus areas.
