CFC makes an impact

The Combined Federal Campaign is a charitable drive (created in 1961 in an executive order by President John F. Kennedy) exclusively for federal employees. The campaign was developed to eliminate year-round solicitation in the workplace by multiple organizations. Over the years, it has become the hallmark of charitable donations from Federal employees. The CFC program is a designated campaign with more than 2,000 organizations listed. It affords donors the convenience of payroll deduction and the ability of donors to designate contributions to their preferred organization. 

In the past, Team Pope has done a phenomenal job meeting and even exceeding its monetary goal, but has fallen short of meeting its participation goal. Imagine the benefits CFC contributions provide to those in desperate need. 

For those who have not donated in the past, consider the following scenario as a reason to give to this year's campaign.
Imagine for a moment, a family member receives a phone call in the early morning hours. The caller explains that a family member's parent, who suffers from hepatitis, was found comatose and in dire need of a liver transplant. 

Weeks pass as the family anxiously awaits word that a match has been found. Finally, the family's prayers are answered and a donor is located. The transplant operation goes smoothly. Because the doctors are successful, the family is able to enjoy an additional 10 years with their loved one.
It is through a lot of medical research and support funds that many people are alive today. A person's contribution can have a global and powerful impact on those in need. Some of those people are right here at Pope. The official CFC campaign period runs Sept. 1 through Dec. 15, but the Pope campaign runs for six consecutive weeks, Sept. 11 through Oct. 23. 

The Team Pope kick-off breakfast is Sept. 11 at 7:30 a.m. at the Pope Club. The goal s to make this year the best CFC in Pope history. Every member of Pope should consider supporting this year's campaign. Help make this year the best CFC drive Pope has ever seen.
