The statewide kickoff for this year’s N.C. State Employees Combined Campaign is scheduled for downtown Raleigh on Aug. 16.
Within DHHS, campaign planners led by Department Executive Sandra Trivett are making preparations to generate awareness and boost participation among DHHS’s employees for this year’s campaign. The DHHS SECC planning committee met July 23 in the Wright Building on the Dorothea Dix campus to share ideas and collect promotional materials. The team includes a mix of veterans and new faces.
“We welcome our veterans back and we look forward to working with our new members,” Trivett said. “Many hands make the work not only easier, but also more fun.”
Since its first campaign in 1985, the Combined Campaign has collected more than $91 million in gifts from state employees. It is the only fundraising campaign authorized to solicit charitable contributions in the state employee workplace. The campaign is led by state employees for state employees.
Once the campaign gets rolling, employees will have familiar options for making their pledge: through payroll deduction or via credit card, check or cash. Your local campaign coordinator will provide you with a giving guide with more than 1,000 eligible charities.
