SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --

A charitable season arrives as the Peterson-Schriever Garrison’s Combined Federal Campaign runs through Dec. 18 and will continue online until Jan. 15, 2021.

The campaign allows federal employees to donate a portion of their income to a variety of organizations of their choice.

“For more than 60 years, federal employees and military personnel have contributed in excess of $8 billion to the CFC, that is a real impact,” said Col. James Smith, Peterson-Schriever Garrison commander. “And I’d like our team to be a part of continuing the giving.”

This year there is an alternative to monetary donations.

“The CFC now allows us to donate volunteer hours,” said Staff Sgt. Jeffrey White, 7th Space Operations Squadron space system operator.  “So if there's something that you really want to support, but you're not able to support them financially, you can donate hours of volunteer time to those organizations.”

While White donates to the CFC, it has also helped him and his family in the past.

His daughter has antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation within one’s veins, causing blood clots and strokes.

Through the CFC, White was able to access the Make-A-Wish Foundation, one of the organizations within the campaign. When his daughter was seven-years old she spent a day with Princess Jasmine at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and participated in other family events due to her life-threatening syndrome.

“[The CFC] was huge for her because she was able to just get away from the constant blood draws, infusions, tests and people poking and prodding her all the time,” said White. “It allowed her to just be a kid, and also be around other kids who deal with similar stuff.”

After brain surgery at nine-years old and monthly infusions for three years, White said his daughter is now a healthy high school student.

The CFC is an easy way to have an impact on people beyond your immediate reach with almost 200 CFC campaigns within the country and overseas, according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s website.
