USAMRMC Subcommand Receives Recognition for Contributions
The Combined Federal Campaign is underway throughout the government and across the world. The U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command will be participating in the CFC throughout October and November. The CFC is the only workplace-giving campaign authorized by the federal government. In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower sought the development and administration of a uniform policy and program for fundraising within the federal service. Since then, the CFC has led the way for workplace giving.
One USAMRMC subcommand is leading the charge for workplace giving within the command. The U.S. Army Medical Materiel Center-Korea recently received a Platinum Award for its 100 percent participation at the $200 contribution level.
"Contributing to CFC is a Soldier's way of giving to those in need through respectable charitable organizations. No matter how much one gives through their generosity, each contribution can make difference," said USAMMC-K commander Lt. Col. Kevin Cooper.
The 2012 CFC isn't over yet and there is still time to give; the campaign will end Nov. 30.
"For those unsure if they want to contribute, I would simply ask them to take a look at the listing of charitable organizations that CFC supports. I can almost guarantee that they or someone they know has received support from one of these charitable organizations and has benefited from the generosity of the federal employees that support CFC," said Cooper. "Again, every donation - no matter how large or small - adds up and can make a difference in someone's life."
