COMECC 2014 Online Pledges Have Ended!

Online pledges (ePledges) have ended for our current campaign (COMECC 2014). Watch for the next campaign pledge cycle in October 2014.

Questions: Emily Gilmore, 617-348-6228,


Dear Colleagues:

We have all been profoundly shocked by the intense tragedy and devastation that has struck the Philippines. Thousands of lives lost, and hundreds of thousands displaced without food or shelter.

Throughout our history, Massachusetts has always been known to rush to help those in need, and this week has been no different. I have already received hundreds of emails and phone calls from teachers and students, community leaders and regular folks, all of them asking how they can help.

I have spoken with the Human Resources Division, who have updated the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Employee Charitable Campaign (COMECC) to allow those interested to donate a portion of their paychecks to the Philippines relief funds.

With thoughts and prayers for the people of the Philippines,

Deval L. Patrick
