Scotland County’s recent United Way campaign realized their goal of $280,000 and St. Andrews was not only a positive contributor, but Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez, Assistant Dean of Students, served as the co-chair for the annual campaign. SAU Pledges increased by 32% from 2018 to 2019 and was the highest amount raised by SAU since 2008.

Additionally, St Andrews students and staff provided over 132 hours of service through the United Way in 2018.

United Way supports positive change through 26 impact programs at 18 local nonprofit agencies. Contributions stay local and touch the lives of two out of three residents in Scotland County.

Dr. Hernandez said in the UW website, “We had a great time completing the challenges but most of all, we enjoyed the time spent with our small business owners. It gave us a chance to discuss and remind everyone what the United Way is all about. We really lived United with each other and the small business owners that day."
