12/3/12: Please contribute to the Combined Federal Campaign -- there are only 12 days to go. As I am sure you know, it is in times like these that donations to charity can really make a difference. Consider how very fortunate all of us are at the SEC this year. Despite the salary freeze and continuing attacks upon federal employees, we all have steady, secure, good paying jobs in the public sector.
This is obviously not the case for everyone in many communities across the country. With the markets in turmoil and continuing economic uncertainty, charities are having a tougher and tougher time staying afloat. And this year, there are also many families who have been adversely affected by Hurricane Sandy – many of whom will remain homeless for months to come. Many communities on the East Coast were devastated by the storm. There are literally dozens of organizations mobilized to provide relief, cleanup and comfort for victims. You can target your contribution to those organizations.
The CFC affords millions of federal employees a convenient, one-stop opportunity to contribute to nearly 4,000 charities – charities with diverse missions including strengthening our communities, helping abused and neglected children, feeding the hungry and homeless, providing housing for victims of natural disasters, searching for cures to diseases, and generally giving help and hope to those in need in many different ways.
I hope that you will consider donating to the CFC this year. Together, we can make a difference.
Thanks in advance for your generosity.
