UA to Celebrate 2020 United Way Campaign

  • November 17th, 2020

All are invited to join WVUA news director and anchor Lynn Brooks and Dr. Adam Brooks, director of the Communication Studies speaking studio, as they announce donations to date for the ongoing 2020 UA United Way Campaign. The College of Communication and Information Sciences is the host college this year, and Brooks and Brooks are serving as campaign co-chairs.

The celebration will take place virtually on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m. via the College’s Facebook page, and the co-chairs will be joined by University of Alabama President Stuart R. Bell, Dr. Mark Nelson, dean of the College, other members of the campaign leadership and special guest Big Al.

Each autumn, The University of Alabama conducts its annual campaign in support of the United Way of West Alabama and its 26 partner agencies. The year 2020 has seen heightened need throughout West Alabama, and has brought about an unprecedented opportunity for members of the UA family to embrace the campaign theme, Tide United: Let Kindness Be Your Story.

We look forward to connecting on Facebook this Thursday as we share the campaign giving total to date. For those who have not yet made their donations or pledges, the campaign will continue through the end of the semester. Those wishing to give may do so through the online giving platform or may contact Elizabeth Hartley at to arrange to give by pledge card.
