CFC Cause of the Week: Military Support

THIS WEEK CFC RECOGNIZES

MILITARY SUPPORT

This week is dedicated to members of the military and their families, who sacrifice immeasurably when they serve our country. Holidays and major life events are some of the most difficult times of the year to be separated from loved ones, yet military families must routinely cope with this challenge. CFC-supported organizations help ease the strain of military life through a variety of programs, focusing on those who serve our country and their families.

Here’s how you can make an impact:

  • $50 fills four backpacks with school supplies for kids in military families.
  • $50 secures jobs for four veterans.
  • $300 pays for a service member to attend a career opportunity day, helping them reintegrate into the private sector

TAJUANA'S STORY

education

My cause is supporting military families. During rough times, military families need extra help and support from programs and organizations. As an active duty soldier, I have personally witnessed the awesome support and services provided by organizations that receive donations through the Combined Federal Campaign. Many soldiers who return home need to go through rehabilitation; and do so with the help of these CFC-supported organizations. Without the CFC, many of these organizations would have limited resources to support our troops, whether they are active or veterans. Most importantly, many CFC-supported organizations go to great lengths to provide resources for the families of active or retired soldiers. I am very proud to give my support to the organizations through the CFC, which is a great way to fund and assist the needs or family members that have dedicated their lives to defending our great country.
