Less than two weeks remain to choose to Live United! Participating in the K-State United Way Campaign demonstrates support of our neighbors and helps impact the quality of life for people in our community who need it most.

The K-State United Way Campaign will conclude Friday, Dec. 9. There are several ways to participate in the 2011 K-State United Way Campaign:

  • Payroll deduction
  • Credit card
  • Cash or check
  • Request to be billed
  • Volunteer your time to assist in the community

All United Way of Riley County member agencies receive a portion of your contribution, but you can choose to contribute to a particular key area: education, income and health.

More than 495 participants have already donated $74,865.98 to make a difference in our community. If we all give a little, we can accomplish a lot.
