United Way of Brevard
Sheriff Ivey asks community to Book’em as part of the 2015 United Way of Brevard Campaign Kickoff
United Way’s 2015 fundraising drive will officially kick off on Thursday, September 17. As part of the event, United Way is asking the community to show their support of the work with early grade reading by either hosting book drives in their workplaces and bringing those books to the event. (Even if you don’t do a company-wide drive, please bring a book to show your support!)
In addition to officially announcing the goal, the program will also highlight special recognition of early summer fundraisers at local companies called Pacesetter Campaigns.
The Sheriff will also share United Way’s vision to create a community where our friends and neighbors have the opportunity to build a good life. According to Sheriff Ivey, “We can impact that by focusing on the very things that help build a stable life – Education, Income and Health. Our community wins when kids succeed in school, adults can secure a good job, manage their finances, and provide a healthy environment for their families.”
The event is being held at Hilton Melbourne Rialto Place with a cost of $20 person. Registration begins at 11:30 with the program starting at Noon.
