The DDCE is once again coordinating the Hearts of Texas Charitable Campaign on the University of Texas at Austin campus. The campaign is part of the annual State Employee Charitable Campaign that encourages all state employees to donate to local and national charities during the month of October.
UT Austin has won an award for the highest per capita giving out of all state institutions and agencies. We are well on our way to earning that award again this year! Hearts of Texas coordinator Milly Lopez reports we have raised 25% of our goal of $615,000 for this year.
