Dear Federal Retirees,
Giving Tuesday marks the beginning of the holiday giving season and has become a global day of giving celebrated nationally on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This is one of the most important days of the year for the 5,000+ Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) charities as the campaign’s goal is to make this the biggest online giving day of the year.
Most of us are planning to eat some wonderful meals later this month, so it seems like the right time to think about those who depend on CFC charities to get enough food all year long. Many of our CFC charities provide nutritious food to those who need it in their community through school programs, soup kitchens, and shelters. As we face a global hunger crisis, donations supporting these charities are more important than ever.
Do you want to make sure that no one goes hungry? Here are some examples of what you can do through your CFC donation:
- Feed students a nutritious breakfast to help them excel academically.
- Improve farming standards through sustainable practices.
- Test children for signs of malnutrition and provide nutritious dietary supplements.
Thank you for considering joining the CFC on Giving Tuesday and giving to the charitable causes that mean the most to you.
