2010 Maryland Charity Campaign at UMBC Ends on a High Note

From Lynne C. Schaefer, Vice President for Administration and Finance and John Jeffries, Dean, College of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences

Congratulations and thank you, UMBC!

As your co-chairs for the 2010 Maryland Charity Campaign at UMBC, we are delighted to announce that the campaign has come to a very successful conclusion. As of November 30, 1195 members of the UMBC community have contributed more than $165,000 to ease suffering and meet basic needs for those less fortunate in our region and across the world. This includes a record $507 raised by the NESS and PSS sponsored bake sale on November 22. (Thank you, bakers and buyers!)

In a year that has been personally challenging for so many of us, this tremendous outpouring of generosity says so much about the compassionate and caring spirit of our community. Your contributions will make a huge difference in the lives of many who need our help.

Maryland Charity Campaign coordinators will be honored at the UMBC holiday party on Wednesday, December 15, at 3 p.m. in the UC Ballroom, and everyone who donated to the Campaign has been entered into a drawing for several prizes to be presented by President Hrabowski at the party.

We hope to see you at the holiday party, and again our heartfelt thanks for your caring generosity to those in need.

Congratulations to Stephanie Johnson, director of financial aid and scholarships, the winner of the Kindle drawing!
