Carolina cares, Carolina shares

Have you ever looked at a candy bar and thought that the cost of that piece of chocolate could provide a full meal for a person in need?

It’s true, or it can be – through contributions to Carolina Cares, Carolina Shares, the University’s charitable giving campaign that began Sept. 12 and continues through Nov. 17.

Jill Cox of United Way of North Carolina uses a stuffed animal to talk about one of the agencies that benefits from donations as she meets with team leaders at the kickoff of the State Employees Combined Campaign on Sept. 1 in Gerrard Hall.

“The focus of this year’s campaign is that any contribution, no matter how small, can make a big difference to those who need our help,” said Brenda Malone, vice chancellor for human resources and campaign chair.

Employees are welcome to make any size contribution to the campaign, although a $5 per month donation is required for payroll deduction. Departmental team captains are currently distributing giving guides and pledge forms.

This year, employees can give online. All employees received an email recently with their personalized link to the Carolina Cares e-giving website. Employees can sign up on that site to give either through payroll deduction or with a credit or debit card.

“This is an exciting and secure opportunity for those who would prefer to give electronically,” Malone said. “If you donate online this year, the site will keep a record of your giving so that next year you will know which charities you selected.”
