United Way Oxford's 12 Days of Giving Campaign will get underway on December 13th and Maglin Site Furniture will match all of the monetary donations collected.
OXFORD COUNTY - United Way Oxford is teaming up with Maglin Site Furniture for this year's 12 Days of Giving Campaign.
It will kick off on December 13th and wrap up on December 24th. There will be a theme for each day in order to encourage participants to give back to their community.
Giving the Gift of Hope will be the theme for Day 3 of campaign. If you're struggling to think of a holiday gift idea for a friend or a coworker, Manager of Resource Development Amanda Kreiger says you can donate to United Way in their name.
"The following day we will reach out to you via e-mail. We will either e-mail you an eCard that you can forward along or we can get you a physical postcard that you can put in an envelope and wrap up as a gift."
You can find a complete breakdown of the 12 Days of Giving campaign below.
