MOUNT OLIVE –On Tuesday, April 9, the University of Mount Olive community will come together for the third annual Day of Giving.
"Giving Day is a 24-hour giving challenge to encourage engagement and philanthropy of all members of the UMO community," said Dwayne McKay, Director of External Affairs for Athletics, and one of the Giving Day Committee members.
Through social challenges and good old-fashioned rivalry, participants will have the chance to push their favorite UMO athletics team or support this year's targeted project – new championship banners inside of Kornegay Arena.
To support this 100% virtual initiative, participants are invited to follow the giving day action on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter by following #GiveUMO.
McKay indicated that this year's goal is $7,500. "This is a very achievable goal and where all UMO supporters come together and can show their Trojan pride to create outstanding opportunities for current and future Trojan athletes," he said. "We invite everyone to join in for the fun, give for the future, and get inspired by the transforming difference one day can make."
