Conclusion of Penn's Way 2002

To the Penn Community:

We would like to thank all of you who participated in the Penn's Way 2002 Workplace Charitable Campaign. We especially want to thank all of the coordinators and facilitators in the schools and centers who volunteered and worked so hard to make this campaign a success. We are delighted to inform you that our partner organizations, the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania and the Center for Responsible Funding, have reported that this year's campaign met our campaign goal and raised over $400,000. You should all be proud of this incredible accomplishment. The compassion and generosity of Penn's faculty and staff truly reflected this year's theme: Commitment to Our Community. A campaign report is posted on the Penn's Way website,

Again, we congratulate all who participated and helped to make Penn's Way 2002 a success!
