As the Combined Federal Campaign season comes to a close in the upcoming weeks, let’s take a moment to thank those who have been instrumental in the success of another year of campaigning for local and international charities.
CFC key workers are federal employees who are generally responsible for distributing campaign materials such as brochures, listings of charities, and pledge cards within their agency or unit. Key workers also collect donations from contributors and deliver them to the campaign manager.
“Key workers have taken time out of their regular jobs to talk to people in their organizations about what CFC is and does. They collect the money and make sure it gets to the campaign manager safely,” said Mary Chizmar, CFC of Western Maryland. Campaign Chairperson. “Without key workers we couldn’t do this campaign, especially because we aren’t big enough to accept online donations, and we can’t get any bigger without the people who have a passion for doing this work.”
The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all, according to the Office of Personnel Management.
The CFC Western Maryland campaign will end Dec. 15.
