Amber Zuber on supporting Lafayette's partner organizations via United Way
This year’s Lafayette College United Way Campaign hopes to raise $60,000 (a 10.7 percent increase over last year) from 225 donors (a 7.7 percent increase), and we’re counting on support from the entire College community, both new and returning donors.
Director of leadership and service, Landis Center for Community Engagement
Easton is a vibrant city with exciting things happening downtown, in the arts scene, and in celebrating our history. But our city also has challenges: Thirty percent of our children live below the poverty line, homeless shelters have waiting lists, and many of our residents struggle with food insecurity.
I participate in Lafayette’s United Way campaign because of its connection to our city and our students. Through Landis, we partner with organizations throughout Easton that benefit from United Way’s support. Our partnerships directly impact the students I work with every day as they develop as leaders and active citizens.
Together, our students and partners work to address challenges, develop relationships, and find meaning and hope for a better future. Our Landis programs wouldn’t be possible without our partner organizations, and many of their programs wouldn’t be possible without United Way’s support.
