State employees donate $22K to Children’s Miracle Network

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech University employees demonstrated their heart for charitable giving, as $22,341 was donated Sunday through the State Employee Charitable Campaign to the Children's Miracle Network telethon, a fundraising event for University Medical Center's Children's Hospital. Texas Tech's portion amounted to $8,583.

"The donation came from funds given through the SECC, which wraps up each October," said David Abercia, the university's SECC coordinator and executive associate to the president. "Texas Tech employees are the biggest contributors of the campaign."

Texas Tech's contribution at the local level accounts for more than 50 percent of the local campaign, with the Texas Tech University System as a whole making up 90 percent of local contributions.

Also, Abercia said, Texas Tech employees are the fourth-largest contributors among higher education institutions statewide, with the system as the third-largest contributor from higher ed.
