Bingo this Friday!

Don’t forget to come enjoy some bingo for a good cause.

Friday, October 10 – NOON to 1:00pm in the PCL Staff Lounge

The fun starts at noon.  The more bingo cards you buy the better your chances to win AND the more you’re giving to charity.  We’ll see you there.

 

I give at the office!

It’s easy to give with the Payroll Deduction!

Payroll deduction is convenient.  It allows you the ability to have your gift deducted in small amounts from your paycheck each pay period.  Through payroll deduction, you can afford to be more generous because it spreads your contribution out over a year’s time.

Payroll deduction provides nonprofit charities with a steady income over the year.  This is critical in planning and implementing successful  programs and in providing assistance when and where needed.

Get started now!

The Hearts of Texas are upon us!

The Hearts of Texas Charitable Campaign begins today!
One of our first events is the PCL Bake Sale!

WHERE: PCL Plaza
WHY: All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society
PIES: Yes! We will also be selling pie vouchers to satisfy your pie cravings all year long.

We could use some extra help at the tables. If you are interested in volunteering, sign up for a shift here.

Please bring donated baked goods to the bake sale tables on your way into work.
**Help us out by putting your name on your Tupperware or baking pan and attach a note describing your goodies (i.e. brownies w/nuts).

If you have any questions please email s.hallgren@austin.utexas.edu

*There will be an increase in pie prices this year due to the increase in cost of the ingredients. Whole pies and vouchers will be $18 and slices will be $2.50.

The Libraries will have several events throughout the month of October, starting with the first PCL Bake Sale on Wednesday, October 2, from 8-Noon on the PCL Plaza. Please drop off your baked goods at the tables on Wednesday morning, or stop by anytime to but something special!

The following Wednesday, October 9, will be the Fall Plant Sale, from 8-Noon on the PCL Plaza. Please remember, for Preservation purposes, that staff are encouraged to remain plant neutral at work, and should rotate one plant for another. If you buy a plant for your work area, then another existing plant should be removed to your home collection. If you need help or further information on the proper care of your plants at work, please contact Kat Strickland or Steve Stein…

There will be Bingo again this year, from 11-1pm on Friday. October 18, in the PCL Staff Lounge.

The second PCL Bake Sale will be Wednesday, October 23.

Benson Latin American Collection will host their Bake Sale on Tuesday, October 29, on the SRH Plaza from 9am-1pm.

We hope to work in a Jeopardy contest, and the month will end at the Halloween Party on October 31, from 1-3pm. Lunch will be served…

Please support the designated charities for each event with your purchases and participation.

Thank You!
