SALISBURY, MD---As the holiday season approaches, Salisbury University’s faculty and staff are asked to help the less fortunate by contributing to the Maryland Charity Campaign.
This year, SU is teaming with the University’s United Way chapter, Maryland’s first student chapter. The United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore, Inc. (No. 4883 in the Maryland Charity Campaign’s Giving Guide) serves 54 programs in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester counties, directly impacting many neighbors and friends of the University community.
Additional agencies participating in the campaign include the Salisbury University Foundation, Inc. (No. 1266 in the Giving Guide), along with almost 700 others.
Employees who make one-time gifts by cash, check or money order will receive an acknowledgement by Tuesday, January 31. Those who contribute by payroll deductions should keep their pledge card bottoms along with pay stubs showing the amount withheld. These items will satisfy Internal Revenue Service requirements for substantiating charitable gifts.
