DJ Weidler on a fundraiser for the Adopt-A-Family Program of the Secretariat


In 2008, The Secretariat adopted a family in need through the Faculty Staff Assistance Program. That adoption was such a success that we hope to duplicate it this year, but we need your help!

The Secretariat Philanthropy Committee is pleased to announce our first fundraiser! All proceeds will be used to help a family in need through our Adopt-A-Family program this winter.

Do you love mums? Well do we have a deal for you! You buy the plants you (or a loved one) enjoys and the proceeds from your purchase will help a family in need this winter during the holiday season.

Payment must be received by our office no later than Friday, September 11, 2009 to include your order. Mail order form and check made out to The Secretariat:

The Secretariat Mum Sale c/o Tammy Montgomery ISGS 615 E. Peabody Dr., MC-650 Champaign, IL 61820
