Messages from the Executive Vice President
September 17, 2013
The 2013 Connecticut State Employees’ Campaign for Charitable Giving (CSEC) is now underway and will launch at the Health Center this month. Your gift to the CSEC supports vital services in our larger community, including shelter for the homeless, protection of the environment, research for cures of diseases, and care for both children and seniors in need. More than 700 non-profit charities benefit from the campaign. In 2012, the CSEC raised $1.4 million for our community.
The 2013 kickoff for the Health Center will take place on Tuesday, September 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the Food Court Lobby. Select vendors will be on-site throughout the campaign and will contribute 20 percent of their sales to the CSEC.
I would like to thank Etta Henderson in Human Resources for agreeing to serve once again as the Health Center’s Campaign Coordinator. She will keep us all informed of progress and events promoting the Campaign. Each department’s contact person will work with Etta to distribute information and pledge cards.
In these challenging economic times, I remain grateful for your past support of the CSEC and hope you will consider a gift again this year.
