District of New Mexico Raises Money for Charities During the Combined Federal Campaign

Albuquerque, NM - This year, the United States District of New Mexico participated in the Combined Federal Campaign, the worlds’ largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign. More than 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and internationally help to raise millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by federal, civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (Sept. 1 - Dec.15) support eligible nonprofit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. http://www.opm.gov/cfc/

The district personnel also augmented CFC contributions by hosting a silent auction to raise additional funds for donation to local and national charities like the, The Community Pantry which Feeds 4,000 hungry New Mexicans a week through direct programs and to partner soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters. The District also contributed to the “That Others May Live Foundation,” which provides critical support, scholarships, grants and warfighter appreciation for warfighter families ensuring children of fallen Air Force rescue heroes receive every opportunity for success and the “Cancer Research Foundation,” to aid in the bold and innovative laboratory and clinical research. In total the United States Marshals Service in New Mexico raised over $2600.00 for local and national charities.
