ERAC September 12, 2012 Minutes
Executive Summary of Minutes
Short Term Disability
Short Term Disability was discussed. An update will follow in the coming months.
Adopt A Family
Through Finance and Administration, departments/groups can adopt a family for the holidays. Lehigh University, David Joseph and Roseann Corsi, work with the school to determine families that need help. Lehigh University is provided with a list per family for what is needed. The department/group on campus receiving that family attempts to get most everything on their list. Some people donate money; some opt to purchase specific items on the list. For those donating money, someone must then go and purchase the items. Early in December, the families and Lehigh department/groups meet for a light dinner and to give their gifts. The family opens one gift at the event and takes the rest home.
ERAC would like to offer this to the campus in order to help more people. Perhaps people outside of Finance and Administration are aware Lehigh participants in this wonderful cause. We would like to further that awareness.
The announcement will be made in October in the Spotlight and ask for participants. Brenda Bachman has already been in contact with David Joseph that we will need families – we are hoping to help at least 5 families.
All members were introduced.
Meeting was adjourned at 10:34AM. Janice Stoudt made the motion to adjourn the meeting and Glenn Strause seconded the motion.
