SECC deadline this Friday

Photo of staff member Carolyn ShankleHave you made your SECC donation? If you have been meaning to, now is the time to act.

The deadline is the end of this week – Nov. 7.

You may donate by payroll deduction – or by cash, check or credit card.

The goal is $200,000. The total stands at $131,210 (as of Nov. 4).

The State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC) helps support more than 1,000 charitable organizations in our area and our state.

“Each employee’s gift through SECC is significant, whether small or large,” says Dr. Ruth DeHoog, campaign chair. “Each gift gets us closer to our campus goal, and it’s tax-deductible and anonymous. We know our UNCG GIVES theme is true – we together make a difference in our community, our state and our country.”

A lot of SECC volunteers here at UNCG recently created signs showing which charity they chose to support this year – and why. Karen Core supports Samaritan’s Purse. Debbie Freund supports Guilford County Partnership for Children. Moreland Smith supports Greensboro Urban Ministry.

To learn more about the SECC, visit secc.wp.uncg.edu. You also can search the charities supported by the SECC. Your department solicitor will have pledge forms, but if you’d like to go paperless, use the ePledge form found on the site.

Not sure who your departmental solicitor is? See http://secc.wp.uncg.edu/2014-campaign/department-solicitors/.
