2013 UVI Alumni and Friends Thank-A-Thon Sessions Scheduled for St. Thomas, St. Croix; Volunteers Sought

UVI’s Office of Institutional Advancement will conduct 2013 UVI Alumni and Friends Thank-A-Thon sessions next week on St. Thomas and St. Croix. “Volunteers will be making non-solicitation calls to alumni and friends of the University, thanking them for financial support they provided over the past year,” said UVI Director of Alumni Affairs and Annual Giving Linda Smith.

The Thank-A-Thon on St. Thomas is slated for 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 18, in the Administration and Conference Center’s first-floor conference room. Two Thank-A-Thon sessions are planned for St. Croix. They are scheduled for 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 18, and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19. Both sessions will take place in the Great Hall on the Albert A. Sheen Campus.

Smith said the Office of Institutional Advancement is seeking volunteers from the UVI community – students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends – to assist in the effort. Students are particularly encouraged to participate either individually, in groups, club, associations or classes. Faculty members are asked to have students seeking extra credit or community service hours call (340) 692-4231 on St. Croix, or (304) 693-1607 on St. Thomas for more details.
