The 57th annual Combined Federal Campaign gives federal employees and service members the opportunity to donate to numerous charities across the globe, now through January 2019.
The CFC is a worker-focused program intended to help all federal employees improve the quality of life for their colleagues during difficult times from donations received for organizations that support finding cures for illnesses, humanitarian aid, animal charities and many others.
“There are so many good causes out there,” said U.S. Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Peter Ruegger, 19th Airlift Wing CFC representative. “Even if people don’t want to donate money, they can donate their time by volunteering.”
This year’s theme is “Show Some Love,” and the total donation goal for Team Little Rock is $50,000. Every squadron at Little Rock AFB has a representative who can give more information about the CFC and how to donate. Individuals can donate one of two ways: pledge forms or online.
Anybody can pledge to donate to the CFC, but they only have until January 11, 2019 to do so. To make a donation, contact your squadron’s CFC representative or go to https://cfcgiving.opm.gov/.
