DU Employees Pledge $43,000 to 2019 United Way Campaign;


Donations will support 30 local non-profit agencies


Employees from Decatur Utilities reached deep this year and pledged more than $43,000 in donations from their personal paychecks to support 30 local non-profit agencies. The donations will go to United Way of Morgan County, which allocates the fund among the non-profits. DU also has employees serving on the Allocations Committee.


"This is a wonderful testament to how much or employees love the local community and want to give back," said Joe Holmes, communications and public relations coordinator. "These agencies depend on the supplemental funding received from United Way - and we are happy to do our part."


United Way announced a total campaign total of more than $1.8 million in pledges recently. Allocations team members are now meeting with agencies to review their funding requests for the upcoming year.
