In the County’s annual employee campaign to raise funds for charitable organizations, project coordinator Terrie Porter, Director of the Child Support Services Department, reported to the Board of Supervisors that nearly $252,000 was raised in the 2016 campaign.
Employees held fundraisers, bake sales, a 5-K Walk/Run and a charity golf tournament to raise funds as well as making personal pledges to have one-time or ongoing payroll deductions withdrawn from their paychecks towards charities of their choice. Charities included a wide variety of services including veterans, youth programs, local and global organizations.
The campaign continues the long-standing tradition of Sacramento County employees generously helping others. Each and every contribution will help improve the quality of life for everyone in the community, as well as people throughout the nation and the world.
