Annual donation campaign begins
/ Published October 22, 2018
“Behind each charity is a personal story.”
The Combined Federal Campaign kicked off here last week. This year’s campaign coordinator wants everyone to know this easy and safe way to donate makes huge differences in the lives of those who receive it.
“Just pausing for a moment to think of your own family’s struggles can help you visualize the burden your donated time and money could relieve,” said Capt. James Ellis, Air Force Armament Directorate. “This isn’t a mandatory donation campaign. It is simply an opportunity to educate people on the impact their love can have.”
This year’s goal is 100 percent contact with all federal employees between now and Nov. 22. The captain provided just a few examples of the impacts donations can have.
$10 feeds a child in a refugee camp for three weeks.
$10 buys 50 books for preschoolers in a metropolitan area.
$30 provides a family of three with health kits following a disaster
The campaign will host two events in November to include a Charity Day at the Base Exchange and a 5-k run with dates and times to be announced shortly.
