CFC races toward $115K goal
By Eddy Ball
With proceeds from a bake sale Oct. 2, the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) at NIEHS had raised nearly $32,200, as of Oct. 29, toward its 2012 goal. CFC brought in an additional $700 from its book sale in late October.
This year’s co-chairs, Office of Management employees Claire Long, a member of Associate Director for Management Joellen Austin’s staff, and Scott Redman, from the Financial Management Branch, called for employees to keep on making pledges.
“We’re 26.7% of the way toward our ambitious goal of $115,000,” said Long. She and Redman praised the generosity of employees so far in the campaign, but also emphasized that the community still needs help from pledges during the final six weeks of the campaign, which will end Dec. 15.
To make giving as satisfying and easy as possible, the drive has a website accessible through the NIEHS intranet, where employees can link to the Greater North Carolina Area CFC pledge site and watch videos about the charity of the week.
Following the Halloween Fun Run/Walk with employees of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Oct. 31, the CFC will hold its Ice Cream Social Nov. 20, from 2:30-3:15 p.m., in the NIEHS cafeteria.
