CFC: there’s still time to donate

The 2004 Combined Federal Campaign ends today for Air Force installations and ends Dec. 15 for Army installations.

“There is still time left to give to a worthy cause,” said Capt. Shauntell Guillory-Hawkins, 1st Air and Space Communications Squadron, CFC installation project officer.

This year’s KMC goal is 100 percent potential donor contact. Since the campaign began Oct. 4, all potential members have been contacted by a CFC representative. However, the campaign is not over yet.

So far the Army community has collected $114,839 and Ramstein members have contributed a total of $640,641. Last year the KMC raised more than $1.2 million during the campaign.

Each year, the CFC generates contributions for family support, youth services and children’s programs, in addition to more than 1,400 humanitarian and charitable organizations. The annual fall fund-raising drive allows nearly four million federal employees and servicemembers to contribute to more than 1,500 nonprofit organizations.

“Contributions from this year’s campaign will really make a difference throughout the KMC and the world,” said Captain Guillory-Hawkins. “They help perform many service projects on base throughout the year by giving back to their neighboring communities. They can benefit your spouse, dependent and your troops’ livelihood.”

Contributions can be made in cash, by check or by payroll deduction. Contact a project officer for more information or visit the CFC-Overseas Web site at
