Employees donate more than $282,000 to ECAP campaign

More than 55 percent of County employees gave to the 2020 Employees Care About Pima County (ECAP) Campaign, donating $282,201 to agencies assisting kids, seniors, pets and more.

The campaign officially ended Dec. 18, though employees can make gifts year-round by completing a pledge form electronically or on paper. Send completed forms to Judy Cooper, Procurement, 150 W. Congress, 5th floor.

You can help our sustainability efforts THRIVE

Many of you know me as the Green Geek who writes a monthly column for Pima County’s external newsletter, PCFYI. I’m here to make a special announcement for just Pima County employees!

Ray and Chuck

Well Done!

Each issue, eScoop would like to give a shout-out to employees and departments who have earned special recognition. We want to hear about colleagues who have earned kudos on the job as well as those being recognized for their work or volunteerism outside the office.

Send your ideas on employees who should receive a pat on the back to the eScoop editor. In this issue, you’ll hear about a thank you to the outgoing chair of the Employees Care About Pima County campaign, those going above and beyond at Pima Animal Care to take care of pets and pet owners in need, and a very public thank you to a Development Services employee who says he’s “just doing his job.”
