SCC Week 14 Update

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

There are less than 3 weeks left in the 2017 State Combined Campaign. Time is of the essence. Your help is desperately needed. If you haven’t turned in, please do so as soon as possible.

Currently, the Campaign is at 82.07% of goal with $637,683 contributed. We are $139,317 from our statewide goal of $777,000. SCC Charitable Agencies are counting on us. They need us to do the best we can do so they can continue to deliver needed services across Alabama.

Right now, only about 1 in 5 has given. We can do better. If someone has not given, ask them to consider a gift of any size.

Ask them to consider $10.
10 minutes of his/her time to consider giving.
10 cents a day ($36.50 annually or $3.05 a month)
10 sodas a year (average soda $1.25 x 12 months = $15.00 annually)
$10 a year ($1 x 10 months)

Every one of these gifts will make a huge difference in the lives of so many across Alabama. If everyone yet to give…would just give $10, we would raise over $900,000. It is a gift he/she will never miss and one that someone else will always remember.

We can’t do it without you. You make the difference. Because YOU care, WE can!!! Is your department/agency where it should be? Is your department/agency where it could be? See the attached reports to assess the progress.
