Federal Community in Mountain States Kicks Off CFC 2019
Ogden— The Mountain States Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is celebrating the CFC 2019 charity drive by inviting federal employees attend multiple kick-off events throughout the region, including a Nov. 4 Kick-off at the Hill Aerospace Museum, 7961 Wardleigh Rd, Hill AFB, Utah. Local CFC-eligible charities will attend to help generate contributions of volunteer time and financial support. The CFC is the official workplace giving campaign for military, federal civilian, postal employees as well as federal and military retirees.
The Mountain States CFC serves more than 165,000 federal employees as well as over 120,000 federal/military retirees and is one of 36 CFC zones throughout the country that collectively raise millions of dollars each year for non-profit causes. In 2018, Mountain States CFC donors gave over $3 million and pledged more than 3,700 volunteer hours valued at approximately $80,500 to charities.
“We’re looking forward to many fun events with hundreds of generous individuals who care deeply about service and giving back to their communities,” said Michelle Stewart, cochair of the Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC) for the Mountain States CFC zone. “Last year, our federal colleagues raised over $3 million for participating charities. We urge each federal employee to support a cause that inspires them through payroll deduction, direct contributions, or by volunteering time.”
“We’re excited to bring active duty and civilian federal employees from Hill Air Force Base and play host to other federal agencies at the Hill CFC Kick-off on Nov. 4,” said Lt. Colonel Jason Bartels, 2019 CFC Chair for Hill Air Force Base. “Federal employees from all branches of government and our armed forces contribute enormously to our nation through their daily public service,” Lt. Col Bartels continued. “This campaign is a great opportunity to further that commitment.”
