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 Georgias 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 Angelsyou
know who you arethose 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)
