The United Way will run its annual campaign on campus this month, hoping to exceed last year's total contributions of $23,804.

Despite the fact that United Way of the Lehigh Valley fell short of its goals last year — most likely because of Sept. 11 — Lafayette was able to raise about the same amount as in past years. Campaign organizer Jay Ronald “Bud” Martin, professor of chemical engineering, hopes to top last year's total. He is planning to bring a United Way representative to campus to answer any questions or concerns about the organization.

In conjunction with the fundraising campaign, United Way will raffle off a 2003 Chevy Malibu and a Carnival Cruise for Two. An annual gift of $2 per week gives the donor one chance on the cruise; $4 per week gives two chances. Increasing last year's gift by $1 per week gives an individual one chance on the car; an increase of $2 per week gives two chances on the car.

It is possible for a donor to specify a contribution to a single organization (or group of organizations) or to exclude any organization from benefiting.

Completed forms, which should begin to circulate within the next few weeks, may be sent to Martin at 411 Alumni Hall of Engineering.
