NC State employees gave $521,000 to local charities in 2008 through the State Employees Combined Campaign.
“When you think of the economic times we are in, this is really a wonderful accomplishment and statement for NC State’s ‘family’ to make on behalf of others,” said Chancellor James Oblinger.
The total was just under the campaign goal of $525,000, which was set in August, before the recession hit, said Gene Bressler, 2008 chair. “These funds will surely help many in our extended community during these tough economic times,” he added.
Through SECC, employees can contribute to more than 1,000 organizations.
