Penn’s Way—Thanks a Million
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Each year Penn’s Way calls upon the unified strength of our community to respond to the needs of those less fortunate. For this year’s Stronger Together campaign you answered our call and then some! On behalf of the University leadership and our charitable partners from the Center for Responsible Funding, Penn Medicine and The United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania we would like to say Thanks A Million! Thanks a million for your commitment to sending a message of hope and support to the vulnerable populations these agencies serve.
Because of your generosity and compassion, in spite of this challenging financial time, the Penn’s Way 2009 campaign met and exceeded its goal of $1,200,000—raising $1,300,372 for those in need!
We especially applaud the hard work and enthusiasm of the many individual volunteers who served as Volunteer Coordinators and Captains, and appreciate the support of several Penn departments: Almanac, Business Services, Computer Connection, Division of Public Safety, ISC, Mail Services, Payroll, Penn Athletics, Penn Publications Services, the Travel Office, Penn Communications, UPHS Marketing Department and VPUL.
Our deepest thanks to them and to you for making the Penn’s Way’s 2009 Workplace giving Campaign another remarkable success! Thank You.
