Tobyhanna Kicks Off Annual Combined Federal Campaign
Team Tobyhanna kicked off the 2014 Combined Federal Campaign on Wednesday. This year’s slogan, “Give for Good,” highlights what we can do to improve someone’s situation. Every dollar we raise is an investment in making America and the world a better place:

• CFC charities feed the homeless and put roofs over their heads; • CFC charities help wounded service members and their families; • CFC charities expand education to those who would otherwise have little access to it, and • CFC charities provide critical medical supplies in times of crisis.

CFC is about helping someone who needs help. Whether that someone is a co-worker, a family member, a neighbor down the street, or someone halfway around the world, its one way we can help. That’s one of the strengths of the CFC.
