The Employee Campaign Coordinator, or ECC, is a company's main link to United Way. Their role is to work closely with United Way staff to plan and implement a great workplace giving campaign at their office. These awesome people are often volunteering extra time or taking on the role of ECC on top of their regular work. They take the time to ask all their employees to give, plan special events, and often spend several hours entering payroll deduction pledges into the company' system. We're so grateful for their service to the community!
We held our annual recognition event on February 17th at the iHotel in Champaign. Our special guest speaker was Lisa Benson from the Champaign County regional planning Commission. She spoke about the Emergency Shelter for Families - a project made possible because of the work our ECC's do to get donations every single year. Each year we celebrate a special group of Employee Campaign Coordinators who go above and beyond in their role as ECC.
