United Way campaign has received more than $119,000 from UD employees


8:47 a.m., Oct. 31, 2012--In its fourth week, faculty and staff contributed more than $119,000 to the University of Delaware’s United of Way of Delaware campaign. But with just two weeks remaining, campaign officials on campus say there’s still more work to do.

“The United Way of Delaware has served families in Delaware for over 40 years and continues to make our community a better place to live and work,” said Jennifer (J.J.) Davis, vice president for finance and administration and co-chair of this year’s campaign.
