101 MayorSylvesterTurner 1As we embark on another Combined Municipal Campaign, let us take a moment to reminisce about the good we’ve done for the city of Houston, surrounding communities and organizations nationwide:

  • Two years ago, city employees raised more than $750,000 during the “Give a Little Peace” campaign two months after Harvey left its path of destruction.
  • Last year, we raised just $40,000 shy of $1 million, proving that “We Rise by Lifting Others,” because this was the highest amount pledged in the past six years, benefiting 750 agencies registered with the CMC. 

Donating your time and money to those in need are not easy decisions when you are balancing the demands of your careers and families. Your willingness to continue to give is evidence of your commitment to improving the lives of so many.

Each year, as your mayor, I too, make the decision to donate to worthy causes. I also give back by participating in the annual CMC basketball tournament fundraiser… because, “It Starts with Me.” 

If you each give $2 per paycheck, we can raise $1 million dollars; if you can’t, patronize one or more of the delicious breakfast or sweets sales that take place during the campaign. For those of you feeling generous, commit to giving 1% or more of your salary to become a member of the Above & Beyond Club. We’ve held steady at just over 200 of you who join the club yearly. 

Make your decision today to donate what you can. Let’s say together: “It Starts with Me”!       

Mayor Sylvester Turner
