York’s Glendon campus gets into United Way spirit

York’s 2003 United Way Campaign has already begun at Glendon campus. Employees have raised nearly $255 through a Halloween café, raffle tickets, candy sales and, as they put it, “all round begging.”

Remember: You can join the Keele campus United Way campaign tomorrow from 8 to 9:30am in Central Square for the annual Pancake Breakfast. The “Serve It Up For Charity” event costs only $2.

York’s campaign runs from Wednesday, Nov. 5 to Thursday, Nov. 27, with a goal of raising $180,000 for charity. Get involved in the spirit and help support this worthwhile cause.
