Washburn University raises money for United Way campaign

As a pacesetter organization, Washburn University lead the community as the first donor group to stage a United Way of Greater Topeka campaign for 2013.

Washburn’s campaign theme, “Take a Stand, Lend a Hand” set the tone for the campaign, which ran April 10 through May 3. This year, the Washburn University and Washburn Institute of Technology faculty and staff donated $26,403.72.

This year’s campaign approach is to help those at Washburn gain a better understanding of what United Way does for our community and how we as members of this community can become more involved. Together by supporting United Way, Washburn is able to show that as individuals, and as a university, we understand the importance of building a better, stronger and more caring community.
