Messiah employees surpassed their goal of $33,000 to raise more than $36,700 for the United Way of the Capital Region. The organization hopes to raise a total of $10 million so that it continue providing valuable life-sustaining services to locals struggling in these difficult economic times.
For more than 10 years, College employees have been encouraged to donate to the United Way during an annual pledge drive. The United Way of the Capital Region touches many central Pennsylvanians in need by funding important programs administered by local non-profit organizations. Many of the organizations supported by the United Way are also served by Messiah students through placements by the Agape Center for Service and Learning.
