TWU kicks-off State Employee Charitable Campaign


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University is kicking off its annual State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) during the month of October. TWU’s goal is to raise $56,000 and to have 85 percent faculty and staff participation from its Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses.

TWU was recognized by the state for having the highest participation — 72 percent — and the highest per capita gift — $57.61 — for higher education employees in 2005, when the university raised $65,629 for the campaign.

TWU’s 2006 SECC campaign is chaired by Dr. Sheri Dragoo, associate professor of fashion and textiles, and Michelle Williams-Laing, director of the Professional Development Center in the College of Professional Education. For more information on the campaign visit www.twu.edu/secc.

The Texas Legislature created the SECC in 1993 for employees of state agencies, junior and community colleges and universities throughout Texas to give to their favorite charities through an annual workplace giving campaign that features the convenience of payroll deduction. SECC is the only statutorily authorized workplace campaign for state agency and higher education employees throughout Texas. Beneficiaries include local United Way agencies and other charities that the employee donor can choose to direct their donated funds.
