It is my honor to serve as the campaign chair for the 2013 State
Employees’ Charitable Giving Campaign (SEC). Giving is a personal
choice. If you choose to support the United Way through the SEC, I
don’t think you will regret it. It is a decision you can feel good
about because it has the potential to change someone’s life.
The United Way strategically focuses on education, income and
health -- key building blocks for a good life. State workers have
always been generous because we understand the role charities play
in improving the lives of our fellow citizens…and when lives change,
everyone in the community benefits. The money raised through the
SEC can make a difference to someone who is struggling financially
or to a child with a disability. Your monetary gift will touch the
lives of many individuals and families. Your support can move
someone from barely surviving to succeeding.
Life is about choices; but poverty or illness is not something anyone
chooses. However, today you can choose to support the United Way
through the SEC campaign. I assure you, your pledge to the
“Changing Lives, Changing Idaho” campaign, which runs from
September 1 through October 31, 2013, will make a difference.
The state sponsors a giving campaign each year because so many
people are in need...and everyone has a stake in making Idaho a
better place to live. It is such a privilege to work alongside the
thousands of dedicated, hard-working men and women employed by
the State of Idaho. I can only hope none of us ever needs the
assistance of United Way charities; but if we do, it’s nice to know
Idaho citizens have always cared enough to help others. Please
choose to support the SEC by completing your pledge card today.
Thank you for your generosity and for caring about your fellow Idahoans!
