Staff Sgt. Steve Stanley
Air Combat Command Public Affairs

LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va., – Combined Federal Campaign activities in the Continental United States may now resume, according to a memo from the director of the Department of Defense’s CFC program.

Campaign activities were suspended during the 17-day government shutdown according to the campaign management office.

The deadline to donate to the CFC is still November 1. Prior to the shutdown, ACC’s CFC volunteers contacted 100 percent of the ACC staff. If a donation was given through pay allotments, it can be expected to be taken out on the January end-of-month pay period, said to Master Sgt. Frederick McCray, ACC’s volunteer CFC program manager.

Air Combat Command headquarters has received $143,000 in donations this year, which is nearly half of its $312,000 goal.
