The State of Ohio CCC Steering Committee worked with employees of the Ohio Department of Public Safety to design and print license plates embossed with the CCC logo and then sent them to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction so that inmates could cut and bend them into a rectangular platter or tray that can hold candy or office supplies while displaying an employee’s State of Ohio pride. Honorary Chair Jim Tressel signed 30 trays.
The Combined Charitable Campaign (CCC) State Steering Committee is pleased to announce that Jim Tressel, former head football coach at The Ohio State University and current president of Youngstown State University will be the honorary chair of the 2017 CCC.
One of the CCC’s donor recognition items, an exclusive State of Ohio license plate bowl, was crafted through a unique partnership between the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. The State of Ohio CCC Steering Committee worked with Public Safety employees to design and print license plates embossed with the CCC logo and then sent them to ODRC so that inmates could cut and bend them into a square bowl that can hold candy or office supplies while displaying an employee’s State of Ohio pride. These special bowls are only available to CCC donors, who donate $5-$19 per pay period or make a one-time donation of $130-$519.99.
This year, employees were given an opportunity to share why they contribute to the Combined Charitable Campaign (CCC). Look for employee testimonials to learn why donating through the CCC is important to your colleagues. Testimonials are featured in weekly campaign emails and in the charity resource guide
. The CCC State Steering Committee would like to thank the state employees who contributed personal testimonials to this year’s campaign.
