Penn's Way 2002 Campaign:
Commitment to Our Community

Dear Penn Family Members:

We would like to thank those who have chosen to participate to-date in the Penn's Way 2002 Campaign. For other Penn community members, we want you to know that, at the mid-point of the campaign, we would be grateful for your support in reaching our campaign goal. We know that all "Penn people" have an abundance of compassion, generosity, and commitment to serve others that is reflected in this year's theme: "Commitment to Our Community." Many of you have given generously to help those deeply affected by our national tragedy of September 11 and its aftermath. In addition to the numerous challenges that have resulted from this tragedy, we encourage you to support, through Penn's Way, the on-going significant needs of our local communities.

In addition to helping others, we also want to let you know that all who participate have an opportunity to win some great prizes. It's not too late to participate: the drawing on December 17 will include two airline travel certificates! Also, remember that the grand prize is an Apple iBook laptop computer! For a list of the weekly raffle prizes awarded to-date, please see the website,

Again, please join us in supporting Penn's Way 2002. We need you!
