Your Neighbors Need You-Please Say Yes to United Way

Robin Christopherson, ’05 O&M; Julie Dickson, executive assistant to the AUNE president; and Samantha Berry, board member for the Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention

AUNE began its part in this year’s United Way campaign Friday, with a presentation by Samantha Berry of the Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention’s (MCVP) board of  directors and Markem-Imaje, and AUNE alumna Robin Christopherson, ’05 O&M, MCVP’s executive director.

MCVP, which is a special focus of AUNE donations throughout the year, serves about 1,000 survivors of domestic abuse and violence, and 4,000 children and teens through education annually, Christopherson said.

Berry said that more than forty agencies in the Monadnock region benefit from the United Way. What stands out to me about this region is that we always look out for each other, she said.

Faith Wilder, administrative assistant in AUNE’s Office of Development, who has volunteered with United Way, said the beneficiaries of the United Way’s help might surprise you. You never know who your money might be helpingit might be a friend or a family member, she said.  And AUNE President Steve Jones reminded everyone about giving back.  We have an obligation to be a good steward of place ; good citizens in the community.

Donate through a pledge card, check, cash, or make a payroll deduction. If you pledge before the end of September, you’ll be entered in a raffle for a $20 gift certificate to The Stage restaurant.

United Way is not about a few big giversit’s about all of us, said Julie Dickson, executive assistant to the president who is heading up AUNE’s United Way campaign.  If you want to know more or need a pledge card, call Julie at ext. 2436 or email her at [email protected]
