Tallahassee, FL - Enthusiasm filled the room as state employees gathered to be recognized for their outstanding efforts during the 2010 Florida State Employees’ Charitable Campaign (FSECC) Celebration today at the Doyle Conner Building.
A room full of smiles accompanied the applause of attendees as the FSEC Campaign total of $1,757,733 was announced, illustrating the significance of the contributions made by state employees in the Big Bend.
“This year marks the 31st year of the Florida State Employees' Charitable Campaign, which we called ‘We Give Because,’” said former Commissioner Charles H. Bronson. “I was honored to serve as the 2010 Big Bend FSECC chair. “The FSECC gives us all an opportunity to give back to our communities and help those who are less fortunate or are facing an unexpected crisis. I give because I believe in helping others.”
Through the tireless work of so many coordinators, teams, agency heads, and steering-committee members, the money raised from the campaign will support hundreds of local, state, national, and international charitable organizations.
“This year state employees in the Big Bend have again shown that even through tough economic circumstances, they care about ensuring that this community thrives,” said Cindy Quincey, FSECC director. “This is a testament to not only how great our state workers are, but how great the Big Bend community has become because of them.”
State employees celebrated their campaign with refreshments, entertainment, and support from several state-agency dignitaries. The Big Bend FSECC Local Steering Committee and United Way of the Big Bend (UWBB), which is the fiscal agent for the FSECC in the Big Bend, presented special awards to state agencies for their employees’ contributions.
