2002 Combined Charitable Contributions Campaign


I am pleased to report that County employees have pledged to contribute $121,924 for the year 2002 as part of our annual Charitable Contributions Campaign. This represents about a 1% increase from last year, which shows a continued commitment to charitable giving by our employees even during tough economic times. There has also been an increase in the number of biweekly payroll deductions from 1,014 last year to 1,025 this year, indicating greater employee participation. In addition to payroll deductions, we had 90 employees make $5,371 in one-time donations to the September 11th Fund.

A special thanks is due to Reyna Farrales and Kim Langel of my staff as well as the individual coordinators and all employees who participated in the Pie Baking and Pumpkin Carving events for each of the various County departments. They all worked diligently to make the 2002 campaign a big success.

Attached is a comprehensive report that illustrates the amount of County employee contributions by charity.

Vision Alignment

By participating in the campaign and generously giving to the various charitable organizations, employees are contributing to the commitment of Leaders Work Together Across Boundaries to Preserve and Enhance Our Quality of Life, Goal 24: Residents (County employees) accept individual responsibility for contributing to the quality of life of the County as a whole.
