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.

The OLLU United Way campaign runs through Friday. For questions about the campaign or pledging instructions, contact the 2020 OLLU United Way Campaign Chairs Mary Scotka (mscotka@ollusa.edu, Prov. 2C, ext. 5590) or Cyndi Trevino (ctrevino1@ollusa.edu, Moye 110, ext. 6504).

To give, go to the OLLU Employee Donation link: www.giveuw.org/OLLU  

The user id is the employee’s Ollusa email (for example, janedoe@ollusa.edu) and the password is the employee’s OLLU id# 45678 without the preceding zeroes.
