Dear Colleagues,

Today we are proud to kick off the 2013 UNC Medical Center Employee Giving Campaign. We hope you will join us again in investing in our future.

Once a year, we ask for your support for programs at UNC Medical Center such as the Gerritsen Patient Care Fund, the N.C. Children’s Hospital Patient and Family Support Fund, the Employee Crisis Relief Fund, the Jason Ray Transplant Fund, the N.C. Cancer Hospital Patient Care Fund, and the UNC Hospice Patient and Family Support Fund.

Since the initiation of the Employee Giving Campaign two years ago, together, we have raised more than $165,000 to assist our patients, our families, and our co-workers.

In addition to the funds mentioned above, our 2013 campaign features a special project identified by our Employee Engagement Team: “Carolina Care Hospitality Carts.”  Your support will allow volunteers to take carts, stocked with healthy, complimentary food and beverages to families and guests in adult waiting areas throughout the medical center.

The Employee Giving Campaign runs through May 7 and our goal is to raise $100,000 to aid these programs. Find full details about the campaign, and how to designate your contribution, at the 2013 Employee Giving Campaign website.

During the next few weeks, keep an eye out for our sample “Carolina Care Hospitality Cart” making the rounds to accept your pledge! You will also receive weekly campaign updates in Employee News Online. Every gift makes a difference in the lives of the patients and families we serve. We hope you will join us by making your contribution today!

Thank you for your dedication to UNC Health Care and for the service you provide to the people of North Carolina.
