SCC Week 8 Update

Giving back…

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.  – Anne Frank
I’ve seen and met angles wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives. – Tracy Chapman
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. – Nelson Henderson
So shines a good deed in a weary world. – Willy Wonka

State Employees continue to make a STATEment supporting State Combined Campaign charities.  To date, 3,691 (11%) State Employees have given more than $345,775 (44.62%) to SCC charities.  This is an average gift of $93.61.  Please ensure that everyone is given the opportunity to give as participation is the key to our success!

We are nearly to the half way mark of the campaign (goal and time)!  The success of this year’s campaign, thus far, is a direct result of the hard work of you, our SCC Coordinators and Keyworkers!  Thank you.

The holiday season is just around the corner.  Please do your very best to get ahead of the holidays with your campaign.  Many departments and agencies have yet to report.  Please make a report at your earliest convenience!  If you need us to come and pick your report up, just let us know!  Please see the attached reports for the progress of your organization.  Week 8 Report  Week 8 Chart  Week 8 Comparison Report

SCC Week 4 Update

“KINDNESS is one of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another. If someone is in need, lend them a helping hand. Do not wait for a thank you. True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return.” Zero Dean

At the end of week 4, State Employees continue to show kindness through their generous support of the State Combined Campaign. We had another banner week with the 2016 SCC total at $175,576 – almost 25% of our goal!!!

Participation is less than 5 percent. We must convey this message to those yet to make his/her gift – The State Combined Campaign allows a unique opportunity. It is a workplace campaign that allows everyone to give something. Together, the power of our gift is multiplied. Our KINDNESS is multiplied. No matter the amount of the donation, it can make a large difference to the lives of those who receive the benefits. And who knows, perhaps it will also change your life as well. For example: $4 will provide a needy child with a week’s supply of milk; $10 will provide an afternoon of snacks for 10 children with Autism; $12 provides 84 meals through a Food Bank; $24 allows the American Red Cross to cover the cost of one clean up kit for a family; $36 allows the Salvation Army provides a warm, safe place for a family for one night; $60 provides four girls with a Girl Scout membership for a year; $120 provides 1,000 disposable diapers or hygiene items to a young mother in a refugee camp or a caregiver at an orphanage; $300 provides transportation for one Cancer patient for 30 treatments. Think of how these gift changes lives!

You demonstrate your kindness every day as a volunteer, working to help hundreds of charities across Alabama. The funds you raise help the neediest in our communities and provides unique services that we all may need at some time. Your efforts are appreciated and your KINDNESS is multiplied. Thank you.

See the attached reports to track the progress of your Department/Agency. Your organization yet to report? I challenge you to report in Week 5. Make a difference. Be someone’s hero. Make your STATEment.
