What’s New?

  • Theme: The Partners in Giving 2021 Campaign theme is “Make an Impact!”. No one should have to live without hope. During this year’s campaign, we are banding together to create hope for people, families and communities in need at home, across the country, and around the world.
  • Paper Pledge Form: Employees may give with a paper form. The new form process will save the Campaign thousands of dollars and create a more efficient way of handling your paper pledges. Be sure to fill out the complete form, including your contact information.
