CFC efforts continue

By Kimberly K. Fritz DLA Energy Public Affairs

The campaign is ending soon, but there’s still time to make contributions to a charity of your choosing through the Defense Logistics Agency Combined Federal Campaign.

“The campaign ends Jan. 12, but there’s still time to give,” said Energy CFC Coordinator Armenthia Massey.

As of Jan. 7, DLA employees have generously donated $211,572.45 or 77% of the agency’s 2019 CFC goal. DLA’s CFC workers encourage all employees to consider giving to help DLA achieve its $274,000 goal.

“DLA Energy has shown a big jump in giving this year $41,643so far this year as compared to $32,109 same time last year,” said DLA CFC Coordinator Watt Lough. “A lot of credit goes to Armenthia Massey.”

Lough said Massey is energetic, creative and dedicated to making a difference.

“No doubt the improved outreach to all Energy employees, including those working off site was her leadership and initiative to increase the number of DLA Energy keyworkers.”

The theme for the final week is “Finish Strong.”

CFC, the largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, raises millions of dollars each year for more than 20,000 nonprofit charitable organizations worldwide. The charities supported through the CFC range from community groups to large well-known charities.

Employees can search charities on the CFC giving webpage. Employees can donate by credit card or payroll deduction on a one-time or reoccurring basis.

The secure online portal reduces administration costs and errors and allows users to search for specific charities or view a list of organizations that support specific categories like animal rights, the environment or public safety. Employees can also donate time rather than money by choosing a charity with a hand icon next to it.

Individuals donating 1% of their salary are eligible for the Eagle Award and employees donating 2% of their pay are eligible for the Double Eagle Award. Employees contributing the required amounts for the awards must contact Massey at armenthia.massey@dla.mil and self-identify.
