It’s time to show our appreciation for the United Way!
LIFEDesigns is a proud member of the United Way Agency. United Way works hard to improve the lives of so many by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good. They do so much for not only LIFEDesigns, but our community. With that being said, we are inviting all employees to participate in our campaigns that will benefit the United Way during the month of October. See below for the fun ways you can help raise money for the United Way, starting on October 1st, 2019.
Our most popular activity is Penny Wars! Many of you are familiar with this activity, but for those that are not, here’s how it works:
ANYONE can join! We have 12 jars located in the Winslow office lobby, each with an employee’s name who has been nominated. Each person will try to fill their jar (or someone else’s jar!) with pennies, silver change, and bills. The 3 jars who have the most money raised at the end of the contest are going to get a special “something” at our annual Halloween Party on Thursday, October 24th.
Jeans for a Cause
- To support the United Way Campaign, LIFEDesigns allows employees to donate a minimum of $1.00 a day to wear jeans to work Monday through Thursday. (Fridays are always casual)! (Regular work appropriate jeans are still required, no holes or stains). Please give your money to Vern Hageman if you plan to participate.
- Ever have trouble finding that perfect parking spot here at the Winslow office? As part of our United Way Campaign, we will be having a silent auction for a VIP parking spot of your choice (Handicap spots excluded, except if you have a qualified permit)! Place your bid at the Penny Wars table, located in the lobby, starting on Tuesday, October 1st. The highest bidder will have their spot reserved for the full month of November. The silent auction will end on Thursday, October 24th, and the winner will be announced that evening at the Halloween Party.
It is very important that LIFEDesigns fully participates in the United Way Campaign because the United Way gives us over $30,000 in funding each year! The United Way is important to our community because United Way Member Agencies work together to make sure that all members of the community of various ages and facing different struggles receive the support they need. We’re proud to be a Member Agency in Bartholomew and Monroe counties and this is a fun way to get everyone involved!
