Harvey Ikner Leads USA Employee Campaign for United Way
The campaign chair is appointed by the president based on leadership ability, respect of colleagues and willingness to support the campaign cause.
A kickoff breakfast for the USA Employee Campaign for the United Way was held at the USA Mitchell Center on Sept. 29. Aimee Risser, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama, was the event’s guest speaker.
Ikner said USA’s employees have been exceptional contributors to the United Way for many years. The United Way brings together the people, ideas and resources necessary to best serve the thousands of individuals and families who face hard times and truly need assistance. The United Way of Southwest Alabama and its 50 partner agencies continue to provide vital services to people in need, making our community a better place to live.
“It is my privilege to lead the University’s efforts to support the United Way and its partner agencies for the outstanding services they provide our community,” Ikner said. “I thank you in advance for considering a gift to the 2015 USA Employee Campaign for the United Way. Your support will have a meaningful impact in our community.”
The United Way serves Mobile, Clarke, Washington and Choctaw counties with programs that are focused on education, health, financial stability and life’s basic essentials.
The deadline to return pledge cards is Nov. 3, 2015.
