RE: Madison College Combined Charitable Campaign
As the seasons change, many of us anticipate “sweater season,” walks in the woods to enjoy the fall colors, cheering on our favorite teams and pumpkin spice everything. Before we know it, autumn pastimes shift to winter necessities such as shoveling, hanging strands of lights and squeezing in holiday shopping.
In the coming busy days, take time to remember those in our community who do not have the luxury of enjoying the colder months, the homeless family worried about where to sleep, your neighbor unable to afford hot water and parents heartbroken that they cannot afford transportation, healthcare or food for their children, let alone buy them presents.
There is a way you can help. Give to the Madison College Combined Charitable Campaign. No contribution is too small as stated in our tagline, “Give a little, help a lot!”
Choose from charities under four umbrella organizations (details arriving in your mailbox soon) and donate via payroll deduction or by check. See your pledge form for details or make your pledge online at madisoncollege.edu/ccc.
If you wish to give to our students, donate funds to the Scholars of Promise program, Big Dog’s F.I.S.H. (Food Insecurity Stops Here) Scholarship or our South Campus initiative. The matching grant to support our new South Campus has been extended, so act now.
Watch your inbox for Matters updates on CCC events and opportunities to give. We hope you will participate in events that are fast becoming Madison College traditions. These include our Cutest Pet Contest, Give Thanks event (featuring root beer floats, 50/50 raffle, accessory market and nut hut) and our online auction.
Join me in sharing our gifts and warm hearts with the community. Let us prove again that Madison College cares.
Jack E. Daniels, III
