University Libraries: United Way Kickoff!

Hello Everyone! The University Libraries is gearing up for this year’s United Way campaign. The University is doing things a bit different this year and giving each area of campus a section of time to run their campaign. Our campaign will run from October 16- 27th.

This year’s United Way theme is, “Live Mizzou. Live United.”

There is even a fun hashtag #MizzouLU, Mizzou Lives United.

How can you a member of the Mizzou family live united? There are so many ways! Whether it be a monetary donation to a United Way organization or giving of your time the ways are endless of how you can help.

One way that you can show your support is to come out for the Annual Chili cook off! This year we are mixing things up a bit by adding a Cookie Bake off to go along with the Chili. You definitely don’t want to miss the excitement of this change up.

We will also be doing a few games along the way so watch for those emails to come out soon!

Sheila Voss is back this year to help lead your United Way Ambassadors, Gwen, Sheryl and Michelle through a great campaign. To make it a huge success we need YOU.

So are you ready to MizzouLU?

  1. Mark your calendar for October 17, Chili Cook-Off and Cookie Bake off Day!
  2. Contact Gwen Gray to sign up to bring chili. Poultry, Meat, and Vegetarian are the categories for you to consider. Which will it be?
  3. If you are a staff member of a specialized library or UMLD, Please consider the cook off! We want to see your smiling faces at this event.
  4. Our team is supported by Sheila Voss! Sheila can assist with your questions related to your donation or how you can help.

For now, please mark your calendar to attend the chili cook-off at 11:30 on Tuesday, October 17.  Plan to come hungry! And Live United!

Our best to you!
