This year's Combined Federal Campaign kicks off Sept. 17, presenting another opportunity to show our generosity and compassion.

CFC is the world's largest and most successful workplace giving campaign.  Since the first campaign in 1964, federal employees have donated more than $7 billion for charities and causes that are near and dear to them.  CFC provides funding assistance to more than 22,000 national and local emergency relief agencies as well as eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. 

I encourage you to consider giving within your means.  Your voluntary donation through CFC is a true force multiplier and could make a difference in many lives.  This year's CFC theme "Our Opportunity to Improve the Quality of Life" echoes this sentiment.  Additional details, important dates, and activities can be found on the Florida Panhandle CFC Facebook page.

Within the next few weeks, unit CFC key workers will provide contribution materials and answer any questions you may have.  CFC also makes it easy to contribute using MyPay, and the payroll deduction option spreads your contributions out over the next year, beginning in January 2016.

Thanks for your support and for all you do each day.  It's an honor serving with you.
