   The CFC is an annual workplace charity campaign that            engineering operations chief, at the 99th LRS Vehicle Operations compound on Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Oct.
helps support eligible non-profit organizations that provide       14. The CFC kicked off Sept. 1 and is scheduled to wrap up Dec. 15. Rather than focusing on a set monetary
benefits throughout the world.                                     installation goal, the installation CFC representatives set a 100-percent contact goal to help raise awareness.

   “The CFC is an entity that combines all of the approved
charities under one umbrella so that all federal employees,
military and civilian, can donate to any type of organization
that appeals to them,” said 1st Lt. Benjamin Brabec, 99th Civil
Engineer Squadron engineering operations chief. “The orga-
nizations are sorted into categories such as people, animals,
and many more.”

   The CFC is one of the world’s largest and most successful
annual workplace charity campaigns.

   “The CFC is our once-a-year volunteer opportunity to person-
ally choose those charities which we feel offers the most benefit
to our service, communities, and families,” said Col. Richard
Boutwell, 99th Air Base Wing commander. “As military and
civilian members we are afforded a rare opportunity to take the
lead in showing the world that charity begins at home.”

   Having campaigns like the CFC give individuals the chance
to help make a difference in the lives of others.

   “The CFC is important because it allows people to make a
difference outside their work area and the base. It allows people
to make a difference in the community and even across the
world,” said Brabec. “There are charities that you may not have
