Federal workers come through

On behalf of over 2,300 charitable organizations that were part of the 2011-2012 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) of Island County I would like to thank the federal employees of Island County that participated in this year’s fund drive at Naval Air Station Whidbey and the U.S. Postal Services of Island County.

The generous employees of NAS Whidbey and the Postal Service raised donations of over $293,000. The federal employees of Island County contributed their time, talent and treasurers to benefit local, national and international charitable organizations that participated in the local CFC of Island County.

Thanks to the FRCNW Whidbey Island at NAS Whidbey for allowing Lt. Mark Logan and AMCS Blane White who served as the loaned executives. Both Lt.  Logan and Senior Chief White trained, led and motivated hundreds of unit coordinators and key workers who made this year’s CFC a huge success.

This year’s CFC effort would not be possible without the year-round support and guidance of the Local Federal Coordinating Committee that oversees the CFC. Those members were Cmdr. Kimberly Schulz and Cmdr. Daniel Olvera, along with the Charity Eligibility Committee of: Lt. Mark Logan, AMCS  Blane White, AD1 Keith Hasby, AD1 Jason Norton, AZ2 Jenny Verduzco, AT1 Christopher Dixon, AME1 Lucus Norenberg, IT2 Tysha Cherry, AME1 Truman Lowry, AE2 Lindsey Strack, AMC Freddy Mosquera, and  AZC Shawn Merriman.

Thanks to the federal community for giving so generously in time and money. With the help of all these individuals and donors, the CFC supported local, national and international agencies to improve the quality of life for all.
