United Way campaign a success

This year's CSUS United Way campaign met its goal to break the $100,000 mark for the first time ever, showing once again the strong community support of University employees.

In total, CSUS employees gave $109,975, up from $93,427 last year.

The average gift was $150, and 712 employees from the University, CSUS Foundation and the Associated Students participated. There were also 25 employees who participated in the September 11th Fund.

Eight employees contributed more than $1,000 each, and 25 employees contributed between $500 and $1,000.

This year's campaign was chaired by Elroy Littlefield, executive director of the CSUS Foundation, where employee giving grew 200 percent, from $3,972 to $12,006.

For their "above and beyond" help with the campaign, Littlefield especially thanked Peggy Ashley, Hornet Bookstore secretary; Kathy Harris, administration coordinator; Grasiela Pompeo, student assistant; and Nancy Pennebaker, special assistant. He also thanked the campus area coordinators and key campaigners.

Next year's campaign will be chaired by Marilyn Hopkins, dean of the College of Health and Human Services.
