Employees honored for giving

“Through the Charitable Contribution program, you find a sense of purpose and calling in your life,” said Lt. Governor Casey Cagle, kicking off this year’s State Charitable Contribution Program.  “The program is a demonstration of selflessness—doing something not for ourselves but for others.”

Cagle continued, “All of us have people in our lives who have molded and shaped us and performed an act of selflessness that changed our lives.  The Charitable giving program is one way to make a difference. “
