CFC campaign begins.jpg

The Combined Federal Campaign kicks off Friday.

It’s a chance for workers to make contributions to the charities of their choice.

“Anybody can give,” Maj. Jeffrey Crosbie, this year’s CFC campaign chairman, said.

The CFC is overseen by the Office of Personnel Management and it’s the official workplace giving campaign for federal employees and retirees.

In its 60th year, the campaign has raised more than $8.5 billion for charities and people in need, according to its website, givecfc.org.

Locally, the effort is spearheaded by Crosbie, chairman, and Maj. Chad Evans, vice chair.

Last year the CFC campaign on Redstone generated about $870,000, which was about $30,000 more than 2019.

While organizers don’t tie a specific monetary goal to each year’s effort, the goal is to simply to do better than last year.

The CFC campaign is broken up by regions. Redstone falls in the Greater Tennessee Valley CFC region.

According to Crosbie, the Greater Tennessee Valley CFC raised a total of about $1.4 million in 2020.

“When you look at this entire region, we gave over half of (the money) here at Redstone.”
