SUBJECT:    2004 United Way/Combined Health Agency Drive at UCSD "It's you, it's me, it's all of us...."

Please join me in supporting the 2004 UCSD United Way/CHAD Campaign.

This year's theme is, "It's you, it's me, it's all of us..." The theme is appropriate because each of us is challenged to care for the needs of the San Diego community. I encourage you to contribute to UCSD's United Way/CHAD Campaign as a noble way to manifest your caring.

For many years, United Way/CHAD of San Diego has helped locally based agencies distribute funds and other resources to the people of San Diego County. Supporting United Way/CHAD particularly this year following a period of devastation in our community, offers us the opportunity to help sustain these agencies during difficult budget times. It also allows us to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.

Gifts to United Way/CHAD help to support community programs that do the following:

* enhance senior independence
* develop diverse communities
* empower persons with disabilities
* improve health and wellness
* protect the environment
* strengthen families in crisis

The UCSD United Way/CHAD 2004 Campaign will commence on Tuesday, February 17th and will run through Wednesday, March 17th. All UCSD faculty and staff will receive information packages through interoffice mail by February 17th. Additionally, you are invited to visit the UCSD United Way/CHAD website at:


I am proud of our campus community's prior campaign success and I applaud those of you who have volunteered your time, energy and financial resources. If this year's campaign is to succeed, it is critical that each of us become involved and act as our heart dictates.

Questions about this Notice may be directed to Campaign Co-chairs, Rogers Davis (rodavis@ucsd.edu) at (858)534-0286 or Dan Wyman (dwyman@ucsd.edu) at (858)534-7831. On behalf of the United Way/CHAD agencies and the University, thank you for your continued support.
