Donating to the United Way

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by dempseyjosh, Aug 4, 2013.

  1. It's that time of year again.

    Does everybody else's management team try to pressure you in to donating?

    My on car sup brought me the form and asked if I was going to donate. When I told him no, he put the form to the back of his pile so he could give it to the center manager to talk to me later about donating. No means no, right? I shouldn't have to explain why i'm not donating, or feel pressured to.

    I used to staple a dollar to the form for a one time donation so the center manager would get credit for 100% participation but after some snide remarks about my Donation I dont give anything. If they try to pressure me I just walk off.

    If you want to donate, donate. If you don't want to donate, don't. It's none of your ds or center manager's business what you do with the money you sweated for.

    Yes, and it is not limited to UPS. At every corporation everyone's management puts pressure on employees to donate, it's sad to see charitable donations degradate into a public relations cluster*. Then some suit wearing a tie (*********) delivers a poster sized check at a United Way presentation saying their corporation had 100% employee participation.

    No means no. But if you are able to donate United Way does give you the option of choosing where you want your money to go. I donate because I choose to, consider myself fortunate, direct my donations to a local charity, and it's payroll deducted so easier to track come tax time.

    Yes, they want you to donate but.................what they really want you to do is participate. So, if you don`t want to donate, then they want you to put 0 in the dollar amount and sign the form. This way they can claim 100% participation. I do neither.
