Sarah Andrews has had a passion for helping animals for as long as she can remember.

This is why Andrews, an associate instructional designer at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC, contributes to two Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) charities that support her favorite cause: Anti Animal Cruelty Campaign, which provides food for neglected animals, and Animal Legal Defense Fund, which provides support for animals after they’ve been rescued.

She found the organizations by searching through the CFC catalog.

“It’s wonderful to give back,” Andrews said.

In addition to giving money to help animals, she and her husband welcome them into her home. They recently adopted a rescue dog named Indy from a local animal shelter.

“I named him after Indiana Jones because he escaped from the family he was with,” she said.

The CFC is the government’s annual workplace charity drive. Andrews encourages colleagues to support causes that matter to them by searching for charities that participate in the campaign and making donations before the Sunday, Jan. 12, deadline.

For Andrews, donating to her favorite CFC charities is about more than just saving animals.

“It’s about the ongoing rewarding benefit and future preventive measures,” she said.
