Overall, Rumbaugh said he was looking forward to the positive impact of these changes, as well seeing more creative efforts from DLA, such as the DLA CFC 2016 Mannequin Challenge video.
The event also featured guest speaker Wayne Hanson, board chair for Wreaths Across America, who spoke on the history and actions of the CFC-supported charity that lays donated wreaths on the graves of veterans during the holiday season.
After Hanson’s account of what CFC efforts can mean to a charity, Bunn presented awards to DLA organizations based on their employees’ donations to the CFC.
The Merit Award, earned by having 50 percent employee participation or $125 per capita donations, was awarded to the DLA Director’s Staff, DLA Information Operations and DLA Acquisition
The Honor Awards represent those organizations that achieved 60 percent employee participation or $175 per capita donations. DLA Strategic Plans and Policy, DLA Logistics Operations and DLA Human resources earned Honor Awards.
The President’s Award, for organizations achieving a 75 percent employee participation or $275 per capita donations, was awarded to the DLA Joint Reserve Force.
The ceremony concluded with the ceremonial unveiling and handing off the CFC campaign book from the DLA Human Resources to 2017’s coordinators, DLA Logistics Operations, with one change from previous years resulting in a much thinner book.
“We read Ms. [Kathy] Cutler’s … print reduction initiative, ‘Think before you print,’ so instead of printing it all, it’s now one page with a link on it to the S drive where all the files are located,” Bunn said to his CFC successor and DLA Logistics Operations Director Navy Vice Adm. Vince Griffith.
“The challenge is now on to us to exceed last year,” Griffith said. “We’re looking forward to it and to everyone’s participation.”
