Still time to donate to Community Giving effort

The Vanderbilt Community Giving Campaign, “Commitment to Caring,” is on its way, with more than $300,000 worth of pledges being tallied so far.

This goal for this year's campaign is $820,000 and employees can still make pledges.

“We've had a strong participation rate this year,” said Kathleen Corbitt, director of the office of internal campaigns. “We're receiving new pledges every day and need everyone to get involved to meet our goal and help improve the lives of people in our community.”

Two examples of involvement are this year's mid-campaign prize winners: Dixie Taylor, from Patient Care Services, won dinner at Ristorante Volare and Nashville Symphony tickets and Shelley Meadows, from the University Registrar's office, won dinner at Jimmy Kelly's and symphony tickets.

The four designated campaign federations for the campaign are the United Way of Metropoli-tan Nashville, Community Shares, Community Health Charities of Tennessee, and, new this year, the K-12 Public Education in Metropolitan Nashville. Gifts can be designated to one or all of the giving initiatives. To find out more about the 2005 Community Giving Campaign contact the campaign office at 343-8759 or or visit the campaign Web site at
