Senior administrators will drop in during the kickoff to wish the campaigners well. There will also be a continuous showing of the 1999 United Way film, Get Together, and photo displays of Jeffersons Day of Caring activities at various sites throughout the community.
United Way agency representatives will be on hand to staff booths, to answer questions and supply information about their activities. Community Carey will also add to the events festivities.
At the kick-off, campaigners can pick up their 1999 United Way mugs and their packet of campaign materials or can arrange for colleagues to do this for them. Campaign materials will be available in the East Atrium Conference Room until 10 a.m. Campaigners will also receive their ticket for the door prize drawing.
The campaign ends on Friday, November 5, giving Jeffersonians three weeks to reach our $230,000 goal. Throughout the campaign, campaigners will receive free coffee, tea or hot chocolate when they present their United Way mugs at the Atrium or Atrium food carts in building lobbies.
