United Way Looks for Support

October 24, 2007

Fifty UNH faculty and staff members gathered in the Strafford Room on Oct. 15 to obtain information and return to their respective departments with better ideas on how to relay the message of the United Way Campaign this year.

“Give,” said Christine Penny., United Way Research and Development director. “Whether it’s time, money or goods, whatever you can do to help.” UNH and United Way of the Greater Seacoast have partnered together this year through a communications class that, with the help of a few faculty advisors, organized the luncheon. Each speaker expressed excitement about the class’s involvement.

President Mark Huddleston said, “These 23 students’ efforts will have an enormous impact on so many cities and towns in Seacoast area.” Huddleston urged each faculty and staff present to contribute to the campaign. “If you haven’t got charity in your heart, then you have the worst heart trouble,” he said, quoting Bob Hope.

Vice-President of the Board of Directors for United Way of the Greater Seacoast Andrew Smith discussed some of the reasons why it is so important for faculty and staff to contribute to the campaign.

“Although we live in a university where we rarely see community issues, they are there. We’re working on solving problems, not just dealing with the aftermath,” Smith said, referencing an effort to try to keep people out of shelters, not just fund them.
