Although the MGH United Way campaign came to a close Nov. 19, members of the community continue to need support. Donation pledges will be accepted for the remainder of 2010, and as of Nov. 18, 7 percent of all employees have made donations to raise more than $385,000.
Giving to the campaign provides crucial aid to a range of deserving local charitable organizations. Employees can direct their gift to a specific organization or allow the United Way to direct funding where it is needed most. Pledges can be made -- as a one-time gift or via payroll deduction online -- at www.massgeneral.org/unitedway, by printing and submitting a pledge form to the Employee Access Center in Bulfinch 107, or through PeopleSoft (HRMS Production>Self Service>Tasks>Voluntary Deduction). While the grand prize raffles are over, employees who donate after Nov. 19 will still be eligible for special rewards such as membership in the United Way's Caring Club discount program or an invitation to a donor recognition breakfast in January.
