HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- The 2019 Combined Federal Campaign at Hill Air Force Base officially began Nov. 4 during a CFC Kickoff and Exposition event held at the Hill Aerospace Museum.
Local CFC-eligible charities attended the event to help generate contributions of volunteer time and financial support. In addition, Nikki Stone, 1998 gold medalist in aerial skiing, was the keynote speaker for the event and shared a personal story of how charities helped her family overcome challenges with diabetes
The charity is part of the Mountain States CFC that serves more than 165,000 federal employees as well as over 120,000 federal and military retirees. It is one of 36 CFC zones throughout the country that collectively raise millions of dollars each year for non-profit causes.
In 2018, Mountain States CFC donors gave over $3 million and pledged more than 3,700 volunteer hours valued at approximately $80,500 to charities.
“Federal employees from all branches of government and our armed forces contribute enormously to our nation through their daily public service,” said Lt. Col. Jason Bartels, 2019 CFC co-chair for Hill AFB. “This campaign is a great opportunity to further that commitment.”
During the base’s campaign that is scheduled to run through Dec. 15, all active-duty military personnel, federal civilians and federal retirees can contribute to any of the thousands of available CFC charities that support a number of causes including human rights, disaster relief, veteran support, health care, clean water, and education just to name a few.
Personnel can pledge through one of their unit’s CFC key workers. They are also invited to pledge or learn more about the campaign at www.mountainstatescfc.org. The last day to pledge through the CFC online is Jan. 12, 2020.
“We’re looking forward to many fun events with hundreds of generous individuals who care deeply about service and giving back to their communities,” said Michelle Stewart, co-chair of the Local Federal Coordinating Committee for the Mountain States CFC zone. “We urge each federal employee to support a cause that inspires them through payroll deduction, direct contributions, or by volunteering time.”
