Those making donations may select one or more organizations to receive it. More than 1,000 organizations are listed.

The top recipient UNCG donors designated last year? Greensboro Urban Ministry.

Mike Aiken, executive director of Greensboro Urban Ministry, spoke at the Kickoff meeting for volunteer solicitors. “We’re a part of Partners Ending Homelessness,” he said, a local coalition making a positive impact. Greensboro Urban Ministry offers food assistance, emergency financial assistance, shelter and rapid-rehousing for people in need.

Aiken was the recipient of the 2014 Holderness/Weaver Award for his public service.

Aiken, referring to the economy and high employment, called this “a challenging time for the organizations in our community and state.” There is great need. SECC donations make a big impact.

“Thank you for your support for Greensboro Urban Ministry.”
