2016 Our Promise Season Kicksoff!

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Tuesday, September 06, 2016 0 comments
The 2016 Our Promise (also known as the State Employee Charitable Campaign) season kicked off at the state capital on August 30 with a fair of charities and non-profits introducing themselves to Our Promise key workers that represent their agencies.

This is the third year that Heifer Sacramento participated in this fun and fast paced event. It was a beautiful sunny day for getting to know charitable organizations that California state employees can support with monthly deductions from their pay checks. It doesn't get easier to make a difference. No stamps. No reminder mail. Set it and forget it!

Heifer International's CSECC code is 315.

One question asked about Heifer was, 'Does Heifer work here in the U.S.?' The answer is Yes, Heifer does. Heifer is working with small scale farmers in the U.S. to better connect them to markets for their products. Read more about Heifer USA here.
