LIVE OAK — All community members and business representatives are invited to join United Way of Suwannee Valley for its October community fundraising campaign luncheon at RIVEROAK Technical College at noon Oct. 2.
During each month of United Way’s annual community fundraising campaign, the local United Way conducts a campaign luncheon to provide an opportunity for campaign team volunteers, community citizens, business representatives and agency personnel to learn more about partner agency services, United Way community impact initiatives and businesses supporting the community’s wellbeing through their support of United Way. The speakers will share the results in their own backyard as to how the community investment is helping those in need.
The United Way workplace campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. The workforce campaign is about more than raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and the community.
The organization’s Marketing & Communications Committee established a local theme of “UNITED WE WIN” for this year’s campaign. Throughout this campaign season, the events will highlight local community agencies affiliated with the United Way to underscore how their services contribute to building a strong community and community member support through the donation of time, talent and financial resources supports these agencies’ efforts.
The event includes a lunch of pork loin, broccoli casserole, roasted potatoes, salad, yeast rolls, chocolate delight, iced tea and water prepared by the culinary class at RIVEROAK Technical College. The cost of the luncheon is $15 per person. Reservations for the luncheon are needed and may be made by contacting the United Way office at 386-752-5604, ext. 102, no later than Sept. 25.
