Posted on by Lauren Updyke. This entry was posted in Promotions. Bookmark the permalink.

Throughout COVID-19, our staff and faculty have risen to every challenge the pandemic has thrown at them. From providing care in UW Medicine’s hospitals and clinics, to keeping our facilities safe and clean, to redesigning classes, research and student programs to work remotely, UW employees have led the way with excellence, resilience, curiosity and compassion.

Show your husky pride and help support the UW COVID-19 Employee Emergency Fund by purchasing a Husky Strong t-shirt here. Buy one just for yourself or as holiday gifts for friends and families, proceeds go through the UW Combined Fund Drive to support UW employees facing temporary, critical and unforeseen hardships that make it hard to pay for basic household expenses, health care or child care.

That’s right! Through the purchase of this $25 t-shirt, designed by UW student Jubilee Cho, you help support the fund that has provided hundreds of small grants (up to $750) to employees with financial hardships.



ACT NOW: Order by December 9 to make sure your t-shirt arrives before the holidays.

CONVENIENCE: Your t-shirt order will be delivered to the address of your choice.

QUALITY: These 100% cotton t-shirts are super soft and come in two style choices: Regular crew neck (S-XXXL) or slim fit with a slight scoop neck (S-XXL) – this style fits small.

GOAL: If the UW community purchases 1000 t-shirts, together we will raise over $10,000 for the UW COVID-19 Employee Emergency Fund.

Let’s reach this goal together and wear our HUSKY STRONG shirts as we continue to be in this together.

Your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please consult your tax advisor for guidance.

Can I exchange my shirt or get a refund?
