Take the 60 for 60 CECO Challenge

Join a six-decade tradition of giving by pledging a biweekly contribution or by attending one of San Diego County Employees' Charitable Organization’s many fundraising events planned during its 60th annual campaign, running now through the end of November.

For its diamond anniversary, CECO is launching the “60 for 60 Challenge.” The goal is to get 60 employees to pledge a biweekly contribution of just $2 or increase their contribution between now and Nov. 30. (Please see CECO pledge instructions.) For less than a cup of coffee every two weeks, you can add to CECO’s impact!

And the dollars really add up. Earlier this year, the organization awarded grants to 69 non-profit programs totaling $177,000. Since its founding in 1956, it has distributed more than $6.7 million throughout the San Diego region. When we give collectively, we are capable of giving a lot. It’s the power of One County!

Giving has never been so sweet. The CECO Thanksgiving Pie Drive with desserts from Marie Callendar’s will be back in November. And the annual bake sale and baking contest at the County Administration Center will also be returning—(plan to get there early if you want to get a scrumptious plate of lumpia and pancit before it is all gobbled up).

Plus, save the date for CECO’s big bash. The CECO 60th Anniversary Celebration will be held on Friday, Nov. 4. Ticket sales will open later this week.

Stay tuned to InSite for details on all of these worthy happenings.
