CFC ends Jan. 12

CFC - Show Some Love
The 2019 Combined Federal Campaign theme asked employees to "Show Some Love."

WASHINGTON, DC—The USDA 2019 Combined Federal Campaign ended its season of fundraising events and activities in a festive PUSH Event held Jan. 9 at the USDA Whitten Building.

This year, we raised $34,255.04, or 73.8%0, of our 2019 goal of $46,388.98. This is a 19% increase from last week. What a difference a few days, and a PUSH, can make.

In 2019, we encouraged people to think broadly, not just limiting themselves to monetary donations. We asked donors to consider sharing time and talent with their favorite charities. This year’s volunteer hours donated are valued at $5,264.10.

Sharon Parker, Research & Development, served as 2019 CFC Mission Area Coordinator for the Forest Service. The campaign was supported by the following keyworkers* and helpers:

  • Carla Andrews 
  • Tanya Brevard
  • Lisa Delmonico*
  • Mary Dempsy
  • Janae Hammett
  • Angela Jackson
  • Anne Marsh*
  • Priscilla Perry*
  • Cat Whitteker*
  • Pamela Williams*
  • Hope Woodward*
  • Grady Zuiderveen*

Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute their time to the success of this year’s campaign. 

It’s not too late to meet our fundraising goal. You have through Sunday, Jan. 12, to donate and “Show Some Love.”
