WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- The annual Combined Federal Campaign charity drive, interrupted by the 16-day federal government shutdown, has resumed.
Susan A. Yarwood, the director of human resources for Washington Headquarters Services, which manages the Defense Department's CFC participation, announced the resumption in a memo to all DOD personnel.
According to the campaign's website, CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by federal civilian, postal and military donors during the Sept. 1 through Dec. 15 campaign season support eligible nonprofit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.
