State Employee Charitable Campaign: Showing We Care  

The SECC President’s Advisory Committee is preparing for the campaign’s start October 1. And Business Affairs is leading the charge, after being handed the baton for this year’s campaign. VPBA Kathy Funk-Baxter and the SECC PAC volunteers have been working hard for months to raise awareness…and ultimately $175,000. That amount is nearly $40k more than in 2017, so we all need to do more in 2018. The campaign will run from October 1 to November 2. If you donate online on October 4, your gift will help us win the SECC Showdown vs. UT Health San Antonio. Watch the campaign video.

Listen to the audio message.
