Dear colleagues,

I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has donated to the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) so far.

Our local communities and charities need us. Many individuals and families are experiencing unprecedented need. In some cases, charities are seeing families asking for help for the very first time.

If you haven’t had a chance to donate, there is still time. Every dollar counts and makes a difference toward reaching our goal. This year’s campaign runs until Friday, Dec. 10.

Last year, the Hokie Nation surpassed the university goal of $370,000, raising more than $404,000 for charities across the Commonwealth of Virginia. We need your help to reach this year’s goal of $390,000.

I encourage each of you, as a Virginia Tech employee, to visit the CVC website, look through the more than 900 participating charities, and find one that is important to your values. Every donation, no matter how small, will make an impact.

Together, we can make a big difference in the lives of those who live in our communities. Make your donation today through a payroll deduction or by cash, check, or online donation.

Thank you for your support and service to Virginia Tech and the community.
