MARINE CORPS LOGISTICS BASE ALBANY, Ga. -- Representatives from every section on base met at the MCLB Conference Center Oct. 20 to kick off the 2002 Combined Federal Campaign. The kick-off included a breakfast and a brief about CFC and its purpose.
According to the chairman of this year's campaign, Maj. John Stevens, the CFC is important to the well being of a host of charitable organizations in Albany and Southwest Georgia that could not continue their assistance to those who are indigent, disabled, abused or disadvantaged in this area without financial support and volunteerism.
"The potential to help is impressive due to the large number of federal employees here," Stevens said in regard to the base's participation in the annual fundraiser.
The base's goal is to ensure every military and civilian employee knows about the organizations the CFC helps and has the opportunity to donate.
Donations can be distributed equally among all national and local charities identified in the accompanying brochure, or donators can designate which organization or organizations will receive their contributions.
For more information about the CFC and the charitable organizations it represents, notify section or office representatives or call Stevens at 639-6895.
