Just got this email from Beth Rodriguez, Day Nursery Director of Development and coordinator of our internal United Way of Central Indiana campaign. As a UWCI agency, our staff sees the good United Way does in our community every day and our employees are committed to support the campaign personally.
I want to thank everyone for working so hard to make this United Way campaign one of the best we have ever had! We raised $16,356 not counting the pennies that everyone collected. That means we surpassed our original goal of $16,000 by $356! This is amazing! I am so proud to work with such caring and generous people. We are truly blessed.
This money will go to make not only the children and families of Day Nursery stronger, but to improve life for everyone in the whole community. Everyone had to work together to make this happen, and we are a great team.
Beth reported that the Day Nursery Ruth A. Lilly Center has claimed the ownership of the fabulous Day Nursery United Way Traveling Trophy for having the greatest percentage of increase in giving. The senior staff looks forward to preparing a home-cooked breakfast for the five centers who had 100% staff participation.
