Like many area companies, United Way of East Central Iowa also runs an annual campaign that allows employees to give to United Way through payroll deduction. We held our own campaign Oct 21. to Oct. 25, 2013 and had lots of fun activities planned through the week including carnival games and guessing jars! The finale of the week was an apple eating contest against the elephants of the circus. To learn more about this, click here.
In 2013, we surpassed our goal of $28,000 and raised $30,296 with 100% participation.
In 2012, the campaign ran October 22-26. The United Way team kicked the week off by having a short meeting. The rest of the week had a lot of fun activities – including a campus wide grill out lunch, an xBox bowling tournament and a time and talent auction. ( Click here for other fun campaign ideas.)
