Governor John E. Baldacci and Commissioner Anne L. Head recognized and thanked volunteer leaders throughout State government at a State House ceremony today as they kicked-off the 30th Maine State Employees Combined Charitable Appeal (MSECCA). Representatives from several of the charities that benefit from this major annual fund raising campaign were on hand to greet State employees and to share information about their charitable work.
As chair of the 2009 campaign, Department of Professional and Financial Regulation Commissioner Anne Head commented on the importance of MSECCA to families across Maine. “This year’s campaign is very special, as it marks the 30th anniversary of neighbors helping neighbors. Contributions from State employees during the past three decades have made a world of difference in the lives of children, seniors and countless others. Now, more than ever, donations to MSECCA will help to ensure that a hand is extended to individuals and families who need our assistance.”
During last year’s campaign, State employees contributed nearly $400,000 to charitable organizations to assist people throughout Maine, across the United States and in other countries. Since 2000, MSECCA has raised nearly $4 million to support the outstanding work of Maine charities. Beginning Monday, October 5th, State employees will be able to contribute to the 2009 campaign online at www.maine.gov/msecca/.
“The generosity of Maine people can’t be overstated. Through MSECCA and other initiatives, State employees have created hope and opportunity for families here in Maine and beyond. Their efforts are more important than ever,” Governor Baldacci added.
