New donors and those opting to increase their pledges in the United Way campaign at Florid Tech must get their donations in today to be eligible for prizes.
The goal is to raise $110,000 in pledges. All pledges will be collected online.
The United Way of Brevard will keep donations local, where they can help make possible a broad range of safety net services and groups, from the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation and Brevard Achievement Center to Children’s Home Society and the Second Harvest Food Bank.
“I’ve been volunteering with United Way of Brevard for 12 years, and I still continue to be amazed at the incredible ways that they help make our community a better place for us all to live,” said Alison Bogart, Florida Tech’s United Way campaign manager.
Prizes for new donors or increased pledge amounts will be given away at the campus Halloween event on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 31. They will include free meals on campus, gift cards to Best Buy and local restaurants, and lunch at the Dove restaurant with Florida Tech President Dwayne McCay.
