Last chance to ‘Show Some Love’

By Thomas Perry DCMA Public Affairs

FORT LEE, Va., Dec. 7, 2016 — As Combined Federal Campaigns come to a close across Defense Contract Management Agency, team members are running out of time to choose a charity, make a pledge and show some love.

Agency Director Air Force Lt. Gen. Wendy Masiello said she is optimistic “that the kindness and generosity” of employees will help DCMA reach this year’s CFC goal. “I’d like to encourage those of you who have been planning to donate and those who have not had the opportunity to consider supporting the CFC, to do so before our deadline.”

The agency’s employees have again demonstrated their charitable nature, but opportunities to make a difference still remain as events highlight the campaign’s final weeks, said headquarters CFC co-manager Corrisse Jordan. She encouraged interested team members to contact their local campaign coordinator or visit the national website to find out more information.

Jordan said her passion for the campaign is fervent because she has personally benefited from charitable organizations throughout her professional development.

“I feel it is my duty to give back to help others have the same opportunities that were provided to me,” she explained. “Through CFC, I am able to support organizations that focus on education and mentorship which are the causes I care about the most. The CFC affords me the opportunity to ‘set it and forget it’ using the payroll deduction option which equates to a substantial contribution over the course of a year.”

Employees who wish to participate in the CFC can contribute through myPay. Donors can also make cash and check contributions.

Air Force Maj. Joe Purcell, who shares campaign management duties with Jordan, said the diversity of charitable organizations perfectly encapsulates the campaign’s 2016 theme.

“This year’s campaign motto is ‘Show Some Love,’” said Purcell. “This year’s drive is about more than just donating to charities. It’s a reminder that all of us can do things every day to support each other and on a larger scale to bring awareness to those in need in our own communities, nationally and even globally. With so many wonderful charities participating, it’s really easy to find one that matches an individual’s personal interests or philanthropic passions.”

The CFC, which is the only authorized solicitation of federal employees in their workplace on behalf of approved charitable organizations, is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, according to OPM.gov.
