Wolf Pack Gives Back! campaign extension

By most measures, this year’s employees’ charitable campaign, Wolfpack Gives Back, is a success. In just six weeks, we’ve raised the same amount of money and achieved the same level of participation as we did last year after eight weeks, collecting more than $526,000 from 32 percent of our employees.

But I don’t think any of us is satisfied with just matching last year’s numbers. I know I’m not.

The need is simply too great. For example, at the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, demand for food is up more than 60 percent this year, an unprecedented increase.  The change that’s in your cup holder could provide a meal for a family of four.

We can help meet this need, and the needs of more than 1,000 other charities.

That’s why I’ve asked our volunteers across campus to extend the Wolfpack Gives Back campaign for another two weeks, until Friday, Nov. 5.

During the next two weeks, I’m asking all employees to do what they can. If you haven’t made your commitment yet, please don’t miss this opportunity.

This is an extraordinarily difficult time for thousands of people across the state. One in six North Carolina residents is living in poverty.

I know what NC State employees can achieve when they set their minds – and their hearts – to a task. Let’s make this a record-breaking year for our charitable campaign.

Let’s show how the Wolfpack Gives Back.

Thank you.
