In the next week, all George Mason faculty and staff will receive a special communication from President Alan Merten urging participation in the 2002 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC). Last year, through the support of state employees, the campaign generated more than $3.4 million to aid programs sponsored by the CVC.

This year, tough economic times will increase the need for assistance provided by the nonprofit agencies supported by the CVC. Even with the many uncertainties due to the serious revenue shortfall in the state, employees are encouraged not to turn their backs on those who face unimaginable hardships in their daily lives through no fault of their own. CVC will continue to make a difference, and donations, large or small, are essential.

The campaign runs through Dec. 2. For more information, call Missy Cahill at (703) 993-2624.
