Hill Air Force Base hosted a fun and festive kick-off event to launch this year’s Combined Federal Campaign.

The event was hosted by 75th Air Base Wing Commander Col. Jeffrey Holland and began at 11 a.m. at the Warrior Fitness Center, just before the Turkey Trot, the base’s annual 5K run or 1.5 mile walk around the Duck Pond route.

The CFC is one of the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaigns, which has been running for over 60 years. It is the official workplace giving campaign for all people associated with the military.

The campaign aims to raise funds for local, national, and international charities. 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.

The CFC campaign is an excellent opportunity for people to give back to their community and help those in need.

The CFC website provides all the information you need to make an informed decision on where you decide to contribute. After you make one or more choices, there are four easy ways to give to the CFC, including the CFC giving app, online giving system, text-to-donate, and paper pledge forms.

You can also pledge volunteer hours to many charities as an individual or as a group. For more information or instructions on giving to the CFC, visit their website at
