SOS employees, it’s that time of year when we come together to support the United Way of Central New York. Our campaign helps to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community.
A pledge can be made by a one-time donation or through a bi-weekly payroll deduction. There are several options for your pledge. You can support all the UW agencies, designate a specific UW agency, or designate a specific non-profit organization. The earlier you turn in your pledge, the better your chances are to win prizes from the weekly SOS drawings & the United Way Step Up Challenge.
10/7, 10/14, 10/21, 10/28 – Each of these Mondays there will be a winner for a $25 American Express gift card AND a winner for 4 hours of PTO. Once you pledge, you are eligible for all SOS weekly drawings. (However, you can only win one prize)
To be eligible for American Express gift card :: employee must make a donation of any amount.
To be eligible for PTO :: employee must make a payroll deduction pledge or a cash donation for a MINIMUM of $1/week ($2/pay period = $52/yr). *As with all PTO, time must be scheduled and approved by your supervisor. You must be a benefits eligible employee to be entered in this drawing.
