I’ve seen first-hand how you rise to the occasion when it comes to uplifting the community. From providing meals to families in need to restoring the dignity of those who have lost their way, you don’t hesitate to give others a second chance at life.   

Now, more than ever, your help is needed to create positive impacts among those often overlooked and forgotten. If each city employee would donate just $2 a paycheck, we would give this year’s “We Rise by Lifting Others” Combined Municipal Campaign $1 million ways to restore dignity and reveal hope among families overcoming homelessness, people struggling with addiction, or a mother and father working toward a brighter future for their children. 

Through the CMC, you can help create a path of sustainability and uplift others in need. Your donations assist 750 CMC agencies in their mission to provide vital services to some of our most vulnerable populations—children, the elderly, those suffering from chronic illnesses, and the disabled.

As public servants, we must rise to the occasion to serve our community. Whether its donating to a worthy cause or volunteering our time, we rise by uplifting others. Even when the devastating flood water of Hurricane over took our city, we stood united. Since then we have worked together to heal our city.

And it shows.

Last year, city employees raised more than $750,000 two months after Harvey left its path of destruction and over 200 of you gave 1 percent of your salary to the CMC.

I thank you for your continued support, time, and effort to help keep the city wheel turning. 

This year, let’s continue to work together and rise to the occasion to uplift others. 

Being a part of the CMC

Demonstrating a strong sense of community by supporting issues that concern the citizens of Houston.

The 2018 “Give a Little Peace” CMC has ended & we’d like to thank all you for participating!

Whether it was donating your time the CMC would just not be what it is without your generosity and participation.

Our fundraising goal for 2018 was $707,700 and we raised just over $850,000, despite Hurricane Harvey and the devastation that occurred.

COH employees showed up for the city and for their colleagues during last year’s campaign volunteering, donating money to one of the many department fundraisers held across the city and choosing to donate through payroll.

We are looking forward to keeping that same energy for 2019!
