The Combined Federal Campaign of Desert Southwest is the annual opportunity for Federal and Congressional -- and now, retirees and survivors -- in the Desert Southwest region to contribute to their favorite local or global causes. Whether passionate about disaster relief, veteran services, animal rights, homelessness, cancer research, etc. - there is a charity for that cause. The Combined Federal Campaign was established by Presidential Executive Order in 1961 to allow for a single campaign to be conducted once a year in all Federal workplaces. The Combined Federal Campaign enables Federal employees, retirees, and survivors to contribute to the charities of their choice and to engage in citizen-centered, community based activities throughout the world. Direct oversight of local campaigns are conducted by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Washington, DC.

“John” was injured on the job and living w/his daughter when she lost her job in the COVID-19 pandemic. They started going to monthly mobile pantries. Spending funds on hunger or health care worsens w/medical hardships, like when John’s daughter was then diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer. For this family, #FoodAssistance meant two adults getting health care and keeping their apartment. Together, we can all #BeTheFaceOfChangeCFC and pledge today: https://cfcgiving.opm.gov

After 3 #military deployments, I needed help re-adjusting to civilian life. I applied to a CFC charity’s outdoor therapy program for combat veterans & was selected to paddle the Mississippi River (2,300 miles). Every day, I got in my canoe, set goals, and gathered my life experiences & skills. Fresh air & sunlight increase creativity, mood; reducing stress & negative thoughts. #Veterans need new tools in their toolbox. I'm proof outdoor therapy can be a healthy approach to gaining control of your life after the military.

THANK YOU CFC FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!!!

Thank you, CFC! Your support lets us provide children with apraxia of speech the tools they need to succeed. Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder that makes it hard for children to speak. A child with apraxia knows what they want to say but have difficulty carrying out the movements that create speech. Your support ensures parents with children diagnosed with CAS receive evidence-based information, access to qualified speech-language pathologists, and assistive technology to aid in communication. https://www.bestcfc.org/charitypage.php?ein=25-1858159
