VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Vandenberg closed out the 2006 Combined Federal Campaign on Oct. 27 with 20 percent participation from base employees and active duty personnel who raised more than $173,000 in contributions.
"The 2007 Central California Coast Combined Federal Campaign was a tremendous success," said Capt. Rob Traylor, installation project officer. "The generosity and giving spirit of Team Vandenberg truly shined."
Vandenberg's generosity helped this year's CFC exceed the set goal by 15 percent, raising $23,000 more than last year.
According to the official CFC web site, pledges made by federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season support eligible non-profit organizations which provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.
According to the CFC website, the CFC offers a reliable, consistent and easy way of supporting charities which are designed to assist those who are most in need.
"Through this year's contributions, literally thousands of people will be positively impacted through the organizations we donated to, both here along the Central Coast and around the world," said Captain Traylor.
In 2006, federal employees and military pledged more than $271 million. Since the CFC's inception in 1961, the federal community has donated more than $5.75 billion to the CFC.
