iuvo Rounds Out Successful 2016 United Way Campaign

RUSH, NY – May 22, 2016 – The 2016 United Way Campaign is underway across the country and once again, the employees at iuvo BioScience are excited to step in and help.  “We are pleased to report that our participation was up by over 100% this year, and our team rallied to increase donations by over 100% as well.  These results would not have been possible without the focused effort of our Community Outreach team and the generosity of our employees.” said Mary Richardson, Chief Scientific Officer of iuvo BioScience and champion of this year’s drive.

Dr. Richardson sat down with Fran Weisberg, President of the United Way of Greater Rochester, to discuss this year’s program.  The interview is available below.

President and CEO Ben Burton expressed his pride in his organization and provided insight into why he is a United Way contributor, “I continue to be amazed and impressed with our employees, and their generosity in this campaign is just another reason for me to be proud of them.  I give to the United Way for three reason: they assess the needs of the community very carefully, they fund programs in these areas of needs that deliver results, and a very high percentage of the dollars donated go to these programs.  We are happy to be part of this year’s campaign, the first in 11 years where the goal has increased from the previous year.” 

With Communities served around the globe, the United Way is bringing relief to all communities it touches. See www.unitedway.org for additional information and to see how you can get involved in your community.
