Thank you for uniting with us! With your help, this year’s UF Health Shands “UNITE” campaign resulted in a 16 percent boost in participation and a total pledge of $266,758.38 — surpassing last year’s donation by nearly $20,000.
“Because of the tireless efforts and heartfelt generosity of our staff, we have been able to help fund much-needed resources in our communities,” said Robert Nappo, D.N.P., ARNP, NE-BC, UF Health Shands Renal Services director and UF Health Shands UNITE Campaign chair. “The help that the United Way of North Central Florida brings to those in need is immeasurable, and I am proud of what we’ve accomplished and the team that exceeded our contribution goals.”
While our communities are impacted by donations, there are other ways to give back as well, such as volunteering to help one of United Way’s many partner agencies or advocating and working to support services you feel are of value to our communities. One of these agencies includes our very own ElderCare of Alachua County, which provides 60,000 meals annually to at-risk area seniors.
At UF Health, our efforts to improve quality of life for those we serve are extensive, but our support for the United Way of North Central Florida and community agencies extends our care even further to those who need it most. Let’s continue to unite together for a better tomorrow!
