United Way of Lancaster County SurPrize Patrol Visits Nine Donors

Nine lucky investors in United Way of Lancaster County’s 2015-16 campaign were recently visited at their workplaces by the SurPrize Patrol from United Way. The nine donors were chosen randomly from nearly 12,500 names, each of whom made a contribution of at least $100 to United Way of Lancaster County’s annual campaign. The incentive prizes won were all donated by local companies to help support the United Way of Lancaster County’s fundraising efforts.

The top prize, $1,000 a month for year, was graciously donated by Armstrong World Industries and Armstrong Flooring. The prize was awarded to Adrian Bonnell, an employee of Fulton Bank.

“Armstrong has a long history of generously supporting the United Way’s annual campaign in many ways,” said United Way of Lancaster County President and CEO, Sue Suter. “Through donations and volunteerism they truly lead the way in our county to help improve the lives of our neighbors. We are incredibly grateful for their support.”
