United Way of Mat-Su has created the Sockeye Relief Fund. 100% of all contributions will be used specifically to address the recovery efforts.
Thank you so much for your support of our community.
1. In the Workplace
Ask if your place of employment holds a workplace campaign. Many do. If they do, attend the United Way of Mat-Su presentation and if they hold a campaign, but do not offer a presentation, ask if one could be scheduled. A presentation will give a report about the work being done to improve our community and how you can get involved in those efforts.
If you are a business owner, call today to schedule a workplace campaign. Invite us to speak to your employees any time during the year. Presentations can last anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. A typical presentation includes an introduction to United Way, a viewing of our campaign video and a report on progress being made in our community. We provide the materials needed for your employees, including campaign brochures, pledge form, information sheets, table tents and more.. We work with you to determine the appropriate length and content of the presentation. Call Cherie at 745-5822 to find out more.
2. You can be an Employee Campaign Coordinators
Employee Campaign Coordinators (ECC) are volunteers from businesses in our community who generously donate their time to advance the annual workplace campaign efforts for United Way of Mat-Su within their place of employment. We can help with great ideas for having fun while raising money. ECCs are essential to a successful workplace campaign and are sometimes lovingly referred to as our United Way of Mat-Su Champions. ECC’s are VIP guests at our annual kick-off event.
3. At Your Service Organization
Plan to have United Way of Mat-Su as a speaker at one of your meetings. Learn how your service organization can work alongside United Way in the areas of education, stable income and health.
4. In Your Home
Invite friends for a United Way Party. We will help with the planning and you will be the hero.
