JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri Department of Transportation employees contributed the highest amount ever raised by a single state agency in the history of the Missouri State Employees Charitable Campaign in 2009. Their contributions topped those in all other state agencies for the second year in a row.
MoDOT employees contributed $192,297 during the month-long 2009 fundraising period, a 16 percent increase over donations given in 2008.
"I'm so proud of MoDOT employees for their tremendous generosity," said Director Pete Rahn. "To donate more than ever to this year's campaign says a lot about the quality and caring of our employees for their fellow citizens."
It was also a banner year for the "Show Me You Care" campaign as a whole. State employees contributed a total of $1,152,844 - the largest amount in the campaign's 24-year history.
The campaign is organized and administered by the Missouri Office of Administration to provide state employees, on a voluntary basis, with a unified fundraising drive for charitable organizations.
