JEFFERSON CITY - The spirit of giving is alive and well at the Missouri Department of Transportation. For the third year in a row, MoDOT was the top state agency in giving to the annual Missouri State Employees Charitable Campaign - and this year with the highest total donation ever!
According to Office of Administration Commissioner Kelvin Simmons, MoDOT's contribution of $217,614 makes it the first state agency to surpass the $200,000 mark in the 25-year history of the campaign.
While MoDOT ranks fourth in employment among state agencies, its employees made up 23 percent of the total pledges made statewide.
Overall, Missouri state employees broke last year's record contributions by raising more than $1.25 million for local, state and national non-profit organizations. More than 1,100 charities received pledges from state employees through the campaign this year.
