2015 Argonne Combined Appeal (ACA) campaign
Caring for our community
The 2015 Argonne Combined Appeal (ACA) campaign takes place Friday, May 1, and ends on Sunday, May 31. Each weekday different organizations we support (Login required) will be featured here on the blog.
As a laboratory, we can be proud of the generosity of employees who have contributed millions of dollars for more than 35 years to support the disadvantaged in our communities. In 2013-2014, $300,510.45 was donated by employees.
These funds went to provide food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, sanctuary for the abused, treatment for the ill and research toward cures for a host of debilitating diseases. Your continuing generosity extends our laboratory’s reputation for leadership, excellence and community support.
To encourage donations, gas cards will be awarded each week to early contributors. Names will be selected at random and awarded a $25 gas card. The first week, four names will be selected; the second week, three names; the third week, two names; and the final fourth week, one name.
I urge you to be generous and to complete your pledges promptly. Your contributions bring assistance to families, friends and neighbors in their times of need.
You can find detailed descriptions of the organizations supported by the ACA on Inside Argonne (Login required). The electronic pledge system located on Inside Argonne (Login required) will be used again this year. Employees who do not have computer access will receive paper pledge forms.
