Change for Change

Every Friday throughout campaign, SAUW was at a different community location with a set of BIG RED UNITED WAY letters. The event became extremely popular in October and the letters ultimately traveled to a new location every business day and some weekends! Businesses and community members took pictures with the letters to show their support for the SAUW workplace campaign.
