Here we go!

The 2013 UNMC United Way campaign kicks off today, running through Oct. 11. This year, UNMC has an employee contribution goal of $156,000.

For the ninth straight year, UNMC employees can pledge online through an efficient, secure system now using your UNMC eServ (formerly ESS) password. Paper pledge cards are available as well.

A "no-pledge" option is available online for employees who choose not to donate. If you're unable to contribute, you still are encouraged to access the website and submit the "no donation" response to be eligible for the prize drawings.

Employees can contribute to a host of United Way-supported area organizations or can contribute directly to the campaign, which helps support hundreds of health and human service programs across the Omaha-Council Bluffs-Bellevue area.

Pledge by 4 p.m Friday to be eligible for the first weekly prize drawing, which will be held each Friday during the campaign. Among the prizes available during this year's drawings are tickets to three Nebraska football games.
