Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Now is the time for us to reflect on all the many things we are thankful for and blessed with. We are so fortunate in so many ways and we can help those who may not be as fortunate.
We need your help. There are only 8 weeks left in the 2015 State Combined Campaign and we are still quite a way from our goal of $780,000. There is still time for us to help as many as possible.
To date, $407,373 has been contributed, representing 52.23% of goal. Participation is currently at 13.29% with 4,572 state employees contributing. We must make every effort to encourage the remaining 29,480 state employees to participate – at any level! Participation is the key to success! Encourage those who have not given to do something, and explain how any gift can be multiplied to help so many Alabamians in need.
As the year’s end draws closer, we ask that you turn your cards in as often as possible so that we can get payroll deduction cards back as quickly as possible for processing.
Please review the attached reports and access your department’s/agency’s progress. Also, if you know someone from a department/agency that has not participated, please contact them and let them know, “I Give, so can you. It’s easy through the State Campaign! Help us make a STATEment.”
I cannot express my appreciation for all you have done thus far. Your hard work impacts so many people in so many ways. Thank you. Please let us at the SCC Office know how we can assist you in wrapping up your campaign. We are eager and glad to help.
Congratulations to the following Departments/Agencies and Coordinators for exceeding goal in Week 11:

Thought for the week:

The Law Enforcement and Traffic Safety (LETS) Division reached 100% last week, and Financial Services reached 100% participation today.
LETS’ Key Worker is Kadedra Smith and Financial Services’ key workers are Sherita Gibbs and Bessie Sharp.
Sparky the Firedog made a surprise celebrity appearance as the State Fire Marshal’s Division hosted the Department of Insurance weekly Fabulous Friday Drawing for door prizes, all as a part of their State Combined Charities Campaign. Sparky gave out party favor bags full of fire prevention material, and even a “Stop, Drop and Roll” lollipop. The winners who got gift cards from local restaurants were Larry Lauderdale, Mary Brown and Darlene Geeter. Thanks donors and contributors and GO TEAM! Keeping it fun at the Alabama Department of Insurance!
Senior Services had a cake walk during their lunch break on Thursday to raise money for the State Combined Campaign. It was a success. They had fun and raised money and ate cake!
(Cakes were donated by Senior Services employees. Thanks!!!)
