(Fort Leonard Wood)–This year’s Fort Leonard Wood Combined Federal Campaign will get underway October 19th and the solicitation period is scheduled to run through January 15th.
The CFC provides federal employees with the opportunity to donate to charities via a one-time donation or payroll deduction. Apparently there will be no official kickoff event as in the past when local charities gathered at the USO Club or Nutter Fieldhouse to meet with military personnel and civilian workers to explain their charitable work. The Fort Wood goal is to raise 150-thousand dollars. And, according to Stephen White, Fort Leonard Wood’s 2020 CFC coordinator, donations from service members and civilian members end up helping people in the area.
