ECC NEWS FROM UWJXN!
(Employee Campaign Coordinator)
“My Idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
Because of your hard work and dedication in coordinating employee campaigns, we can support early reading programs like Energizing Education. 99% of EE students increased their reading proficiency at least one level last year. Students who read proficiently beyond 3rd grade are four times more likely to graduate from high school. Catching them early with Energizing Education saves a LOT of later remedial costs. Because of you, kids are succeeding in school.
2015 CAMPAIGN UPDATE
THE GOAL IS WITHIN REACH – with your help, we’ll have even more dollars available to improve Jackson next year. Normally this would be the time of year when campaign would begin to wind down. Maybe it’s not as face paced as it was in September and October, but we are still going strong! We continue to campaign at organizations and companies all over Jackson. Have we been to your workplace yet? Yours could be the one to take us over the top!
Is your envelope completed but you haven’t had time to drop it off? Call us! We would be more than happy to run over and pick it up for you.
Today is Giving Tuesday. Look us up on Facebook and please share our posts.
Finally, we just can’t say it enough: THANK YOU! Thank you for organizing and running workplace campaigns this year. We would not have the impact we have in Jackson if it wasn’t for you.
ECC TIP OF THE MONTH
If your campaign is wrapped up for the year, now would be the best time to brainstorm and take notes for next year. Get together with the coworkers who helped with your campaign. Talk about what worked, what didn’t work and come up with ideas to improve next year’s campaign. It will only take a few minutes, and it’s best to have that conversation now while your campaign is still a fresh memory. We have lots of tips and ‘best practices’; our campaign staff would be glad to participate in that conversation or send you some ideas to consider. Feel free to contact our campaign team to discuss; our phone number and email is below.
01/21 (Thur) 5:30 to 7:00 PM United Way Volunteer Reception at the Ella Sharp Museum. Mark your calendars now, you and your campaign team are all invited. Please RSVP by January 7th.
Again, Thank you for everything you do.
