Each year for the State Employee Community Campaign, government agencies choose a different charity to support. The Bureau of Motor Vehicle’s charity is the Mighty Mason fund for palliative care. On Thursday, Sept. 1, employees gathered between the state government buildings to raise money for the BMV’s charity.
“Our chief of staff, Kevin Garvey, is the driving force behind that, it was started because his son passed away from childhood cancer,” BMV coordinator Melissa Hook said. “The goal is for all state agencies to raise money for various charities across the state of Indiana.”
Hook shared that she hopes people can come together for a good time and a good cause.
