Dear Members of UTMB Community:
Won’t you “have a heart” when it comes to this year’s State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC)?
It is my distinct pleasure and honor to serve as the chairman for UTMB’s 2014 SECC. This year’s committee and I will surely need your help! We officially open the campaign on October 28. This year’s theme is “We Know You Have a Heart,” reminiscent of Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz. We hope to raise at least $500,000 and reach at least 30% participation across our institution. As you may know, charities rely heavily on donations from the SECC in order to fund their good work. In the past, in the Galveston area alone, the generous giving by UTMB employees has amounted to about half of all money raised for local and regional charities. With employees across the region and state, our impact is far-reaching. UTMB’s long legacy of kindness and caring provides food, shelter, health care and varied forms of support and encouragement for people in great need and causes worth supporting.
If you are on or around the Galveston campus, please plan to join us at this year’s agency fair and campaign kickoff:
2014 State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) Agency Fair and Kickoff
Tuesday, October 28
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Moody Medical Library Plaza
We’ll also be visiting other areas in the coming weeks. The campaign runs through December 5. Please support us and encourage your friends and co-workers to engage in this very worthy campaign. We’ll be communicating regularly, sharing our progress. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact me or campaign coordinator Becky Trout for support and assistance.
“We Know You Have a Heart” recognizes the giving spirit for which the people of UTMB are known and recognized. Let’s go forward, together, to once again demonstrate that when it comes to having a HEART, there’s no place like UTMB.
With heartfelt thanks,
Vice President and Chief Information Officer
2014 SECC Chair
It’s almost that time of the year… Will you join us on the yellow brick road?
The first cool front has arrived, the agencies are in place, a chairperson has been selected, and we’re working harder than the Lollipop Guild to get all the pieces ready for SECC 2014.View 2014 Agencies
Last year we took a gamble on Vegas and hit a jackpot for the community worth more than $460,000; this year we’re headed to the Emerald City and a lofty goal of half-a-million dollars. Join us on the yellow brick road as we prove that everyone at UTMB really does have a heart.
The 2014 campaign starts October 28.
