United Way Campaign 2020



Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Each year, The University of Scranton works with the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties as they support critical programs in community organizations and strive to improve the education, financial stability and health of our communities.

This year will be no exception. We are pleased to announce the start of The University of Scranton’s annual United Way fundraising campaign on Friday, November 13, 2020.

As the University community continues to direct energies to respond to the numerous matters associated with COVID pandemic, we will forgo many of the associated activities and communications typically shared throughout the campaign, but want to take this opportunity to announce that the annual campaign is underway.

Join us as we support the United Way as they advocate to meet the needs within our communities:

  • The hungry are fed.
  • The homeless are sheltered.
  • Children are prepared for success.
  • Disabilities are overcome.
  • Basic and emergency needs are met.
  • Families are financially stable
  • Neighborhoods are safer.
  • People have access to quality health care.
  • Survivors of domestic violence are given a voice and safe shelter.
  • Seniors remain independent.
  • Teens are mentored.
  • Lives are improved

This year, we again ask you to join us in making the decision to donate to the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties. Donation information, including convenient payroll deduction will be available on the “my.scranton portal “Employee Tab” under “University Giving,” by submitting the United Way Campaign Donation Form or by contacting the Office of Human Resources at (570) 941-7767. Donations will be accepted through December 18, 2020.

Together, we can support the United Way as they work to make sure people get the help they need now while addressing the root cause of the challenges facing our community. The needs are greater than ever this year so we appreciate whatever you can do to help!

Thank you.
