MCC United Way Campaign Kicks-Off: March 12th, 2018

The 2018 Monroe Community College United Way campaign begins Monday, March 12th! We hope that you will get out and get involved in the many events and celebrations that we are having to honor our students and the United Way's 100th year of commitment to our community. Check your e-mail for your chance to make your pledge to the annual campaign.

As our community's college, MCC recognizes the role it plays in changing the lives of students in our region. In much the same way, the United Way of Greater Rochester works to change the lives of many of our student, relatives, neighbors and friends who live in our community.

In just the last year, the United Way's Community Fund served 750 families on how to be their babies best teacher, helped 5,200 students succeed with after school, summer (including our very own MCC Horizons Summer Program) and mentoring programs, provided 39,900 people in need with the basics of food, clothing and shelter, and gave 25,900 elders and their caregivers the resources they need to remain vital and independent.

Our campaign begins with a kick-off event: Monday March 12th, 12-12:50pm in the Flynn Campus Center Atrium, and Wednesday, March 14th, 12-12:50pm at the Downtown Campus. Please join us for food, "the annual change blitz," and prizes! All funds raised in the Change Blitz will go towards MCC's donation to the United Way's Community Fund. The Community Fund is the largest pool of financial gifts collected through the annual fundraising campaign and helps solve our community's most critical health and human service needs.

The 2017 MCC United Way Campaign runs from March 12th - April 20th, please join us for our special events:
