By, Lezlee Whiting
In this season of gratitude and thanksgiving, UBTech is excited to provide an opportunity for everyone to participate in the first annual UBTech Giving Week to raise money for student scholarships.
“We live in the most giving of all communities,” said UBTech President, Aaron K. Weight. “We are grateful for your desire to bless the lives of others. The benefits of investing in the future of tomorrow, through the gift of an education today, are immeasurable.”
This year’s Giving Week will be held Monday through Saturday, December 7 – 12.
“Alumni, current students, faculty and staff, and all who are endeared to the college, are invited to be part of this wonderful opportunity,” said Mark Dockins, vice president of development for UBTech.
One hundred percent of all funds collected go towards student scholarships, said Dockins.
UBTech’s low tuition rates make a technical education affordable. Donations of every size are welcome. For each $10 donated a student receives 5 hours of instruction.
“We know education is the great equalizer. We are in the business of helping our residents re-school, re-tool and re-cover,” said Dockins.
Student scholarship donations can be made in numerous ways. Participate on the UBTech website at ubtech.edu, by clicking on “Giving Week” located under “Campus Info”, visit a local business listed on the website and give to a UBTech scholarship stocking, or participate on Venmo (@ubtech-foundation). A special social media Giving Day will be held on UBTech’s Facebook page on Thursday, December 10 where donations of $25 or more can get you a pair of UBTech socks!
