Activities like this brunch held by the Facilities Division helped the Department of Military Affairs set new records with the 2010 Kentucky Employees Charitable Campaign.

Frankfort, Ky. (November 8, 2010) – Employees of the Kentucky Department of Military Affairs set a new record for donations during this year’s Kentucky Employee Charitable Campaign.

“Our final tally for this year’s donations was $41,084,” said Col. Steve Bullard, director of the Division of Administration Services.  “That’s 117.4 percent of our goal of $35,000, easily topping our previous record amount of $37,610 set during the 2007 campaign.”

The department also had nine “Leadership Givers” who donated one percent or more of their salary.

“The generosity shown by our employees during this year’s campaign is remarkable,” said Bullard.  “Donations to other charitable organizations have suffered somewhat due to the economy.  For us to surpass our previous KECC record is a welcome surprise.”

Bullard credits the accomplishment on the mindset of the department’s staff.

“This organization has a mission statement that focuses on helping others in their time of need,” he said.  “This is just one more way the Department of Military Affairs makes a positive contribution to the citizens of Kentucky.”

Here’s a listing of donations by division:

Kentucky Logistics Operations Center – $21,971 OMA/Administrative Services – $7,692 Kentucky Emergency Management – $5,850 Facilities Division – $3,527 Bluegrass Station – $1,654 Youth Challenge – $390
