Detroit | 29 October 2019 – The Michigan Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is celebrating the 2019 charity drive by inviting federal employees to attend a charity fair at the McNamara Federal Building on Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is designed to generate contributions of volunteer time and financial support for the CFC—the official workplace giving campaign for military, federal civilian, and postal employees as well as federal and military retirees.

The Michigan CFC serves more than 47,000 federal employees and over 43,000 federal/military retirees and is one of 36 CFC zones throughout the country that collectively raise millions of dollars each year for non-profit causes. In 2018, Michigan CFC donors gave over $1 million and pledged more than 621 volunteer hours valued at approximately $7,400 to charities.

“We’re looking forward to many inspiring events with hundreds of generous individuals who care deeply about service and giving back to their communities,” said Michelle Rhodes, Executive Director of the Detroit Federal Executive Board and member of the Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC) for the Michigan CFC zone. “We urge each federal employee to support a cause that inspires them through payroll deduction, direct contributions, or by volunteering time.”

“Federal employees from all branches of government and our armed forces contribute enormously to our nation through their daily public service,” Rhodes continued. “This campaign is a great opportunity to further that commitment.” 

CFC events launching the campaign at various federal agencies can be found at the Michigan Event Calendar at https://www.michigancfc.org/calendar-month. At these events, numerous charities will be represented to meet with CFC coordinators and prospective donors, and many fun activities will be arranged to encourage participation. All active and retired federal employees are invited to attend. 

The last day to pledge through the CFC is Jan. 12, 2020. All active duty military personnel, U.S. Postal Service workers, federal civilians and federal retirees in the Michigan CFC Zone are invited to pledge or learn more about the campaign at https://www.michigancfc.org.
