Letter to Editor

A letter to the faculty and staff of Emory University, Emory Clinic and Hospitals, Wesley Woods and Oxford college:

Thank you to all the generous employees of Emory and its health care institutions, who contributed to build a better community through EmoryGives. Because of your gifts, almost $500,000 was raised to improve the quality of life for all residents of the metropolitan region and the state of Georgia.

Here are just a few of the ways that your contributions will be put to work:

• Thousands of trees will be planted to help clean the air and restore the urban canopy and hundreds of acres of land will be preserved for wildlife and recreation through your gifts to Earth Share of Georgia.

• Hundreds of hours of home health care will be provided for a patient living with a life-limiting illness through your gifts to Community Health Charities.

• Matching grants will be provided for the acquisition of computing equipment for use by clients of the Georgia Black United Fund federation members.

• Hundreds of survivors of rape and domestic violence will receive critical services and dozens of children in homeless shelters will receive medical care through contributions to Georgia Shares.

• More of Georgia’s children will have quality, affordable early childhood education and safe, productive after-school opportunities. And families and individuals will become homeowners and small business owners with contributions to United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta.

We owe an exceptional debt of gratitude to the Emory Angels—you know who you are—those major donors who helped put EmoryGives over the top. You all came through during an exceptionally difficult year, in light of the Sept. 11 tragedies and an idling economy.

We are all fortunate that Emory employees value the interconnectedness of our society. We are grateful for your selflessness, generosity, and concern for events that are larger than any one individual. Your gift through EmoryGives contributes to the greater good of the community. We encourage you to follow up with the organization(s) to which you directed your contribution. Learn more about how your money is put to work. And get involved with volunteer opportunities—each organization has its needs.

Thank you for showing the community that Emory gives.
