CFC 2015 Kick Off!

A message from the Pacific NW CFC Campaign Chair

Dear Fellow Public Servants,

It is time to kick off the 2014 Combined Federal Campaign! This year we are all going to focus on opportunities to Be Everyday Community Heroes, both within our own community and across the world.

Heroism is contagious. Therefore, I am calling all of us to look around and see how we can be heroes, no matter what the scale, and to try to make the world around us a better place.

I know that we can all find an area of need that touches our hearts and that allows us to Be Everyday Community Heroes, providing positive support and assistance to that organization and community.

In the spirit of this year’s campaign, I would also remind you that we all can make a difference in the lives of those around us with the gift of time. So please, look for ways to make a difference for the better, no matter how small, and “be the change you wish to see in the world.”

“Be an Everyday Community Hero”
