  • SECC Giving - Dr. Amy Porter's Story

    Tuesday, 10 10 2017

    My family has been involved with several organizations for much of my life. My parents volunteered for animal rescue groups and fostered dogs in our home. My husband has supported the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Charity Code 085111 since his days in the U.S. Army. When I started working at A&M-SA, I found these organizations that my family had long supported on the SECC list. Signing up for SECC is easy, and the monthly contributions allow me to support the organizations that are important to my family and me. Plus, it feels good to help A&M-SA meet its giving goals!

  • SECC Giving - Dr. Edwin Blanton's Story

    Monday, 10 02 2017

    We're halfway through our annual SECC giving campaign. Perhaps you just haven't gotten around to making your pledge. Maybe you are like I was last year. I volunteer a lot in the community, as well as donate to my church and to other organizations in town. I left the SECC giving to others. One charity I have supported for years is the San Antonio Food Bank, which I would do at the end of the month, if I had any "left-over" funds.
