TOPEKA, Kan– March is an exciting time for basketball fans, and the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) staff are cheering on Kansas teams.
In an effort to support Kansas teams and local charities, DCF Secretary Phyllis Gilmore has announced the 2014 DCF Charity Championship.
During the days of the tournament, DCF employees will voluntarily make a minimum $3 donation and wear their team T-shirts, polos or sweatshirts.
All money raised goes to four designated charities.
Secretary Gilmore said “This is a great way to boost employee morale, team spirit and help our community partnering organizations,”
The charities were selected for each of the four DCF regions and DCF’s central office in Topeka.
The charities include Sunflower House, CASA, Wichita Children’s Home, Children’s Miracle Network and Project Topeka.
The regions are also competing for bragging rights. The region to raise the most money for its designated charity will be declared the DCF 2014 Charity Champion.
DCF has 2,300 employees.
