United Way donations matter

Sherree Osborne, UK Libraries 2016 United Way Chair, reports we are in the middle of the 31-day campaign, and a total of $1,740 has been donated. If you have not made a donation, please consider doing so and helping UK Libraries reach our reach our $5,000 goal. Donations can be made online or by printing a pledge form and forwarding to Sherree Osborne, 1-85 W. T. Young Library.  Here is the link with more information on making your pledge www.uky.edu/uw/make-pledge.  

United Way focuses on four key pillars of success:
              Basic Needs - Over 21,000 kids live at or near poverty;
              School Readiness - One in two students are not ready to enter kindergarten on the first day of school;
              Student Success - Two out of five high school grads are not ready for college or a career;
              Financial Stability - Over 50,000 families struggle to make ends meet.
