SECC Campaign mid-point: Halfway there!
October 21, 2021
 

HSC employees, we’re halfway there! It’s been several weeks since kicking off the State Employee Charitable Campaign. That means you have less than two weeks left to make your payroll contribution to your chosen non-profit. Please contribute today and help build stronger, healthier Texas communities all year long! #Stronger2gether #WhyDoYouGive #SECCTexas

Every member of our community deserves to achieve their potential, but the hard truth is that children born into poverty in our region have virtually no chance of escaping it – and that has to change. To break this cycle, we each need to ask what we each can do to make a difference.
