Duke People Lead
...in Building Community
Below are some
of your colleagues who support the United Way. You'll see their pictures
on campaign posters around Duke this month. Here's why they support United
Way with their gifts and volunteer activities...
year I gave to United Way for the first time. Our assistant director
came and talked with me about why he believes in it. I think it's
good to do it that way instead of just getting a form."
Connor, Staff Specialist, Dining Services
support for United Way flows from my commitment to The American
Red Cross. I am a pheresis donor. Pheresis donations produce platelets,
which help blood to clot and are needed by many people with cancer."
Project Coordinator, Duke Press
Way provides an avenue for helping those in need. I give to lend
a helping hand. If I can help somebody as I travel along, my living
shall not be in vain."
Staff Assistant, Duke Hospital Administration
years, my granddaughter Tamecia has been in Partners for Youth,
a Duke-sponsored mentoring and career exploration program that received
a United Way grant. Tamecia says that without it, her grades wouldn't
be as good."
Patient Transport, Duke Hospital
years, I've supported and volunteered with the Orange/Durham Coalition
for Battered Women, a United Way agency. Our gifts help these women
and kids start a new life. What could be more important?"
Ross, Associate Athletics Director
Scott is autistic, and The ARC of Durham,
a Triangle United Way agency, has been a lifesaver. They help out
with respite services when schools are closed or when I need a night

of us have been fortunate enough to come from loving homes, have
medical care, enjoy some of life's simple pleasures, and have opportunities
that many others don't have. Giving to the United Way, with its
reputation for helping those in need, is a personal way that I,
too, can help."
Birkhead, Director of University Police
Terry has been going to the Salvation Army's Boys and Girls Clubs
since he was five. Being an older mom, I like this United Way agency
because it gives him a lot of company and guidance."
