UT Health San Antonio’s State Employee Charitable Campaign, your chance to make lives better, will run from Sept. 4 through Oct. 5. The SECC, the state’s version of the United Way, supports more than 500 charities.
The UT Health San Antonio goal for 2018 is $375,000.
“Through the SECC, we have an opportunity to honor our institution’s fourth mission: to serve and engage in our community,” said President William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, and Mary Henrich, the SECC co-chairs. “We have a strong tradition of giving back to our community, and we have no doubt that this year’s campaign will showcase our university’s generous heart once again.”
The SECC allows employees to provide financial support to hundreds of charities of our choice that assist and empower those who are struggling during a difficult time in their life. Other agencies support animal causes, the arts, global assistance and more.
Areas of help include our own employees. “The UT Health Staff Emergency Fund was created to provide financial assistance to employees who are in need due to a temporary hardship,” said Dr. and Mrs. Henrich. “Designating your SECC donation for the Staff Emergency Fund can help one of our own.”
The annual SECC Food Truck Kick-off event will be held Sept. 7.
