With a few strokes of their pens, Brig. Gen. Carl Schaefer, 412th Test Wing commander, and Chief Master Sgt. Todd Simmons, 412th Test Wing command chief, kicked off this year’s Combined Federal Campaign at wing headquarters Oct. 24, 2016, at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.
The two filled out their pledge forms along with 1st Lt. Christophe Bangerezako, 412th Medical Support Squadron, and Master Sgt. Elizabeth Ramos, 412th Force Support Squadron, who are this year’s CFC program managers.
The campaign runs from Oct. 24-Dec. 12. This year’s theme is “Make a Difference One Step and One Donation at a Time.” Edwards Air Force Base’s goal is to raise $220,000.
The CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, where pledges made by military, federal and postal employees can support eligible nonprofit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. Federal workers, retirees and government contractors are also eligible to donate to the CFC.
On the pledge forms, people can make a one-time donation by check or cash, or set up payroll deductions.
Donations can also be made through MyPay.
