Cheerful charity

CFC urges employees to ‘Give Happy’

USPS aims to raise $5 million for charities during the latest Combined Federal Campaign.

The Combined Federal Campaign — the federal government’s workplace charity drive — begins Sept. 1.

All Postal Service employees, contractors and retirees are welcome to take part.

This year’s theme is “Give Happy.”

The campaign, also known as the CFC, allows individuals to easily review thousands of charitable organizations in the United States and around the globe at participants’ fingertips.

Pledges are accepted online, on paper or through a mobile app.

The Postal Service’s CFC goal this year is $5 million. Most donations are monetary, but volunteer work can also be pledged and will count toward the USPS total.

A postcard announcing the CFC kickoff will be mailed to all USPS employees.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy will take part in a virtual event via Zoom on Sept. 13 and will again join with union leaders later in the season for a video message stressing the importance of the CFC.

The campaign has raised nearly $8.7 billion for its causes since it began in 1961.

The Postal Service is regularly one of the top 10 fundraisers.

Employees with questions can email the Postal Service’s CFC team.
