The GSU Tradition of Community Support Continues
Grambling State University has a history of being a vital contributor to Lincoln and surrounding Parishes. President Richard J. Gallot, Jr. encourages the Grambling Family to continue its support of the annual campus United Way Campaign. Thanks to the generous support of our faculty, staff and students; community senior citizens receive a warm meal, a child is provided a much needed mentor, and a family member is getting assistance to make it through a crisis. These and many other moments are only possible due to caring individuals throughout our campus community who support the efforts of the Northeast Louisiana United Way by participating in the annual fundraising campaign.
The Grambling State University campaign offers several ways to participate in this year’s annual fund drive. You can make a financial contribution, volunteer as a mentor or volunteer to serve in another capacity. You may show your support for this year’s campaign by participating in the following ways:
- Payroll Deductions. Payroll deductions allow the donor to make monthly installments on the amount pledged. The Payroll deductions will begin January 2019 and can be deducted Bi-Weekly or Monthly
through December of 2019, or as specified on the Pledge Form. Employees can specify a one-time payroll deduction for a specified amount. Payroll Deduction Forms should be submitted to Human Resources in room
148 of Long Jones Hall.
- One-time donation. If you would like to make a one-time donation, you may also write a personal check, use a credit/debit card or bring cash with the Pledge Card to the Cashier’s window in Long Jones Hall. All checks should be made payable to United Way of Northeast Louisiana.
- Volunteer. Several of the United Way Community Partners need volunteers throughout the year. For more information on how you can volunteer, please contact Dr. Rory Bedford, the Director of Service Learning/Continuing Education.
For further assistance, please contact Mrs. Lovie Brown-Howell at extension 6116 or Mrs. Kenosha Hamilton at extension 2678 or your Team Leaders.
All cash, checks, and credit card donations may be turned in and taken directly to the Cashiers Window in Long Jones Hall by Tuesday November 13th. The Cashiers Window is open from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and closes at 11:00 a.m. on Friday. The Closing Ceremony will take place Thursday, November 15th from 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m., in the Fred Hobdy Assembly Center Green Room #162. Prizes and awards will be given to departments with 100% participation.

Following tours, which included the NELA Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation, MedCamps of Louisiana, Inc, the Family Counseling Center at the Louisiana Methodist Children's Home, Boys and Girls Clubs NCLA, D.A.R.T., and the The Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana, the group reconvened on campus for a United Way Lunch & Learn to discuss how to #GIVE, #ADVOCATE, #VOLUNTEER and share these opportunities with their colleagues over the next few weeks. THANK YOU, Grambling, for playing a critical role in helping people and improving our community! #LIVEUNITED
