I am pleased to announce the start of the 2021 Commonwealth of Virginia (CVC) Campaign.
I am honored to serve this year as the Honorary President of CVC for Virginia Tech. As the Dean of Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, I see with my own eyes how we can make a difference in the lives of others in a very important and meaningful way.
Since joining the Hokie Nation in 2019, I have been impressed with the commitment to serving our employees and students. For many in our community, the challenges of the past a year and a half were difficult. In the spirit of Virginia Tech’s motto, Ut Prosim (May I Serve), let’s come together to make a difference by supporting organizations that provide service and support in the communities where we live and work
This year’s campaign runs from October 1 to December 10. Since 2010, Virginia Tech employees have donated more than $ 3.5 million to charities in Blacksburg, the New River Valley and across Virginia. With this incredible record of accomplishments, I have no doubts that we will come together to not only meet, but surpass, this year’s goal of $ 390,000.
Every dollar counts and makes a difference. I encourage you to visit the CVC website for more information on how you can help those in our areas who may need additional help. With over 900 charities listed, you can see how each of us can positively impact each other in very important and meaningful ways.
It’s not about how much you give – participation is our goal. It’s the act of giving that makes this campaign so special. There are several ways to give, which are detailed on the CVC Donation Page.
For questions or assistance, please contact your service representative or a member of the management team. A list of members of the steering team is listed on the CVC website.
We are really in the same boat. Collectively, we can make a big difference for the community.
Be well and stay safe.
