Postal Service workers across the nation are busy promoting this year’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) charity drive.

“How much you give doesn’t matter — any amount helps,” said Kelly Ferguson, a business development specialist in Capital Metro Area’s Mid-Carolinas District who is working as a “loaned executive” for the CFC this year.

The drive allows federal employees to contribute to more than 12,000 organizations. This year’s campaign is underway through Jan. 12.

Doris Taylor, a general clerk at the Charlotte, NC, Processing and Distribution Center, is reminding employees they can donate online or with paper pledge forms.

“I encourage everyone to participate in CFC,” said Taylor, who is volunteering for this year’s campaign. “This is the time … we give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, from family and friends to [having] a roof over our heads and food on the table.”

Other employees are also expressing their gratitude for CFC charities and sharing stories of how the annual campaigns have helped them and their families.

“Remember: It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little,” Ferguson said. “Do what you can.”

The CFC Blue and LiteBlue pages have guidelines on contributing to the campaign, including contact information for national and local campaign managers.
