United Way Campaign

PCC Mascot, "Bruiser" with "Live United" t-shirt

The PCC United Way Committee encourages all PCC employees to 'live united' by contributing to the United Way as a means of giving back to our community.  Through generous contributions from employees like you, the United Way Campaign has raised $220,714.71 for the United Way since 2003.  Let's work this year to increase that total and help at least 285 families! 

The 2016 United Way Campaign will run from February 1, 2016 - February 29, 2016.  

How can I Contribute to the United Way Campaign?

Contributing to the United Way is as easy as filling out your United Way of Pitt County Pledge Form and returning your form via interoffice mail.  All PCC faculty and staff will receive a pledge form directly from a PCC United Way Committee member or in their PCC office mailbox.

How Does My Contribution Impact Pitt Community College?

Dear PCC Colleagues:

As a staff member at Pitt Community College I have had many conversations with PCC students regarding challenges they are facing in their lives.  United Way funded partners serve as resources for these students.  United Way funded resources  that could assist students I have talked to include, but are not limited to:

These are very real issues that PCC students are facing.  I know that if I am having conversations with students regarding such topics  then others  on campus are engaging in similar conversations with students as well.  The United Way funds programs in our community that serve as valuable resources for PCC students in crisis.  Donating to the United Way is not simply a 'feel good' concept, but instead has a very real impact on PCC students in need.  Not only do these services help ensure the well being and basic safety needs of PCC students, but they may also be the deciding factor that enables students  to remain in school to complete their education.  In addition, Pitt Community College's Career Readiness Certificate Program is an United Way funded partner.  

Your contribution makes a difference in the lives of PCC students!

Sincerely,
Sharon Ceres
Placement Testing Coordinator and Proud PCC United Way Committee Member since 2011
