he State and University Employees Combined Appeal (SECA) annual statewide charitable giving campaign is now under way until Wednesday, Nov. 18.
The SECA once-a-year campaign provides NIU employees the opportunity to give to charity either through annual payroll deduction or by writing one-time checks. There are more than 1,800 charity organization options to choose from, and all gifts are tax-deductible.
