HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah --
You can be the face of change through the Combined Federal Campaign program that begins Oct. 14 and runs through Jan. 15.
Hill Air Force Base’s CFC kickoff event will be a 5K walk/run/ruck on Oct. 14 at 8:30 a.m. (no registration fee required) starting at the Warrior Fitness Center outdoor track and units across Team Hill are encouraged to participate to show their support for the annual charity fundraiser event.
The CFC is the official workplace giving campaign for all people associated with the military and has been for the past 60 years.
The CFC includes many worthy causes, including disaster relief, education, ending poverty, animal welfare, military support, children and family services, human rights, environmental protection, mental wellness, medical research and community improvement, just to name a few.
“There is a time in everyone's life when we may be in a situation where we need help,” said Senior Master Sgt. Timothy Seidlitz, installation project officer for this year’s campaign. “The CFC and the many charities that it supports provide aid when our friends, families and fellow military members need it most.”
The CFC website is always available to accept pledges or answer questions at givecfc.org, and then go to Mountain States CFC (Zone 10).
While online or in the CFC Giving app, donors can contribute through payroll deduction, credit or debit cards, e-check, bank transfer and can even pledge volunteer hours.
Conventional paper donation slips are still available upon request from one of the many unit CFC representatives. Unit reps will soon be hanging posters with their name, contact information and your unit pledge code.
The CFC website provides all the information so donors can make an informed decision on where to contribute from local regional charities, up through national and international causes, that are vetted by OPM for inclusion on the list. The contribution can also be split between more than one cause.
Seidlitz said Hill’s goal is $162,000, and even a small donation can go a long way to supporting the members of Team Hill.
For example, a simple $5 monthly donation would add to a $60 annual contribution. If everyone at Hill did that, the total would reach $1.62 million.
“No one should go unsupported in their time a need, and I truly hope that the fine members of Hill AFB, raise their hand and donate to this great cause,” said Seidlitz.
