United Way Campaign is Under Way
Our United Way campaign officially started on Oct. 20 and will continue through Nov. 14. This year we have made it very easy to pledge your gift, by creating a link through the United Way’s eZ-Pledge software at http://bit.ly/uw14-15. It is safe and secure, and it only takes 2-3 minutes to make your pledge once an account is created. Plus, if you have given previously, your recent history should be displayed after you log into your account. Please remember to have your employee ID # available before you log in as this will be a required step for those pledging for the first time or if your history does not display automatically.
United Way is a great community partner for our health system and they provide wonderful leadership that drives measurable, lasting impact locally that none of us can achieve alone. I am asking for your pledge, and encourage you to visit www.uwgpsnj.org to learn about their Impact Fund including the Delaware County Impact Fund (Code 34), Education Fund (Code 11), Income Fund (Code 100), Health Fund (Code 101) and Basic Needs Fund (Code 48108). Of course, you also can choose to direct your pledge to other impact partners that include our Crozer-Chester Foundation (Code 49443). United Way offers leadership step-up programs for those capable of pledging at a higher level of financial commitment. To learn more about these details, visit www.unitedforimpact.org/leadership.
