CFC participation surpasses previous year despite continued economic woes

The Combined Federal Campaign, in its 50th year in 2011, has been extended one week, to Nov. 11. "This year is the 50th anniversary of the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign," said Maj. Shana Figueroa, 45th Space Wing CFC Project Officer. "Even the smallest donations can go a long way to help those who are in need; now, more than ever."

Final Combined Federal Campaign numbers for Patrick AFB and Cape Canaveral AFS show an increase in participation by 5 percent over last year, despite the continued weak economy. The 45th Space Wing and Mission Partners collected $194,000 for 2011, 95 percent of their goal. "More people were motivated to donate what little money they had to help others in need," said Maj. Shana Figueroa, 45 SW CFC Project Officer. "This proves that the 45 SW and its mission partners truly care about their community and can come together in a time of crisis."
