As we wind down another calendar year, it’s important to appreciate what’s at the core of the holiday spirit.

Giving. Whether it’s your time, your energy, your accomplishments or your earnings — giving allows for a healthier and safer future for communities at large.

This year, through the hard work and donations of time and money from employees at AU and through generous donations from businesses, we are proud to have raised more than $34,000 for the United Way through our annual online auction. 

As you know, the United Way’s goal is to “create opportunities for a better life for everyone in our communities.” By concentrating on three focus areas – from poverty to possibility; healthy people, healthy communities; and all that kids can be – the United Way is making our communities better.

Thank you to all of the participants and item donors for their continued generosity and caring spirit. You allowed AU to achieve this celebratory accomplishment and, through the money raised, help the United Way achieve its goals and achievements.
