United Appeal campaign within $9,000 of its goal


Ohio University’s annual “United 2 Give, United 2 Help” campaign officially ends on Saturday, Jan. 31, and the University is within $9,000 of reaching its goal.

A fundraising effort to benefit United Appeal for Athens County and its 16 local partner agencies, this year’s campaign committee set a goal of 12 percent participation among OHIO’s faculty and staff and a campus-wide goal of raising $50,000.

As of Jan. 27, OHIO employees had donated $41,461 to the campaign. Another $8,539 is needed for OHIO to reach its campus-wide goal.

Donation information was distributed to OHIO employees’ mailboxes in November. Faculty and staff who need another copy of that information should contact Bethany Venable, chair of this year’s United Appeal campaign at OHIO, at venableb@ohio.edu. While the campaign officially ends on Jan. 31, donations will continue to be accepted after Jan. 31.

Serving the local community for 63 years, United Appeal for Athens County assists area residents meet their basic needs by helping to support health and human service programs throughout the county. For more information, visit http://www.unitedappeal.org.
