Students from Western Kentucky University announce their fundraising event to benefit the United Way of Southern Kentucky. The United Way “Penny Wars” will be held on Thursday, December 6th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. All student groups, large and small, are encouraged to decorate a “bank” and charge into battle to see who can raise the most money to help those in need during this holiday season.

Participating organizations will have “banks” set up across the WKU campus providing the opportunity for all WKU students to donate to the United Way. WKU students can put their pocket change to good use on Thursday, December 6th by donating it to United Way.

Group registration forms can be picked up from the Student Activities office in Cravens room 013 and must be returned by Monday, December 3rd at 4:30 p.m. Registration information can also be emailed to SAO@wku.edu by this time. The winning group will receive a trophy and be recognized on the Penny Wars plaque updated annually with each year’s winner. Together, last year’s ten participating organizations were able to raise $481.85 to benefit the United Way of Southern Kentucky.
