HPU’s Student Government Association Supports the United Way

The student organization donated $21,000 to the United Way of Greater High Point.


HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 17, 2021 – High Point University’s Student Government Association gave $21,000 to the United Way of Greater High Point to benefit various organizations.

Every December, HPU’s SGA makes a significant monetary contribution to the United Way of Greater High Point. The donation will be split between the 27 partners that the United Way of Greater High Point supports.

“Not only does High Point University continually go above and beyond to make our community stronger, but the same commitment to helping others resonates amongst their Student Government Association,” says Jane Liebscher, president of the United Way of Greater High Point. “Through this gift, the HPU SGA will help feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, counsel the grieving, mentor our community’s most vulnerable children and be a friendly face for a lonely senior. United Way of Greater High Point remains tirelessly grateful for this unending measure of compassion for others.”

This is just one of the many ways HPU students give back to the local community. Since 2005, the HPU family has donated more than $2.4 million to the United Way.

We have full faith in their service to our area.”
