Procter & Gamble Campaign Thank-you Event

On March 5, Procter & Gamble hosted a thank-you event for volunteers, companies, and in-house coordinators that worked tirelessly during the 2009 campaign. A delicious lunch was catered by Emelia's Cafe (along with the best brownies we've tasted) and Jeff Schomburger, 2009 Campaign Chair, presented awards to companies and individuals that demonstrated the key strategies of the new LIVE UNITED movement - GIVE, ADVOCATE, and VOLUNTEER. Kimberly-Clark and Cryovac Sealed Air Corporation received the GIVE award for their increases in campaign dollars as well as employee participation. Fox 24 received the company ADVOCATE award for lending their voices to our efforts, while Carlos Briones of Cargill received the individual ADVOCATE award for sharing United Way's mission and work throughout Northwest Arkansas. Procter & Gamble was awarded VOLUNTEER company recognition and Chris Child, United Way volunteer, received the individual VOLUNTEER award. Our first LIVE UNITED award - for demonstrating excellence in all three strategies - was presented to UPS.

We had the chance to thank great friends, volunteers, Board members, and supporters while celebrating the success we had during this year's campaign. Many thanks to Procter & Gamble for coordinating and hosting this event! That's what it means to LIVE UNITED!
