2018 MCC Participants and Advocates

Every year, thousands of Maryland’s Employees and Retirees give back through the Maryland Charity Campaign (MCC). And they have fun in the process! Events across the State bring colleagues together for a laugh, a nosh, and ultimately to help raise the awareness about this important Campaign. Often, Departments/Agencies challenge each other to help raise even more funds for the greater good. After all, funds raised through the Campaign help the most vulnerable among us. Each donation or pledge truly makes a long-lasting impact. What’s not to celebrate?

Whether it’s a Department/Agency challenge, a fundraising party, or other efforts to drum up support, we’d love to share what you do on this page and on Facebook and Twitter!

Tuesday, October 9, 2018: MCC Kickoff in Baltimore (O’Connor Building)

The MCC is off to a great start! On October 9, some MCC leaders who help organize the Campaign joined with participating charities and area Employees for the first kickoff in Baltimore. At the event, Maryland’s leaders spoke, the MCC’s new video was debuted, Employees got a chance to connect with charities and learn more during the charity fair, and donors wishing to give right away were able to pledge online at a secure donation station. Check out the highlights!
