This year's Combined Federal Campaign, which ran from Sept. 14 through Oct. 31, has recently wrapped up.

Joint Base Charleston met and exceeded its goal for 2012 by 30 percent totaling $169,548.01, compared to the 2011 total of $130,066.60. The totals for all three wings are $78,734.61 for the 628th Air Base Wing, $78,950.40 for the 437th Airlift Wing and $11,863 for the 315th Airlift Wing.

"We did outstanding," said Master Sgt. Sheddrick Simpson, 437th AW CFC assistant point of contact. "We exceeded our goals and got 100 percent contact for all groups and squadrons. It was a great year for CFC."

The mission of the CFC is to support and promote philanthropy through a voluntary program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. CFC is the only authorized charitable fund-raising campaign among federal employees.
