The largest workplace charity, the Combined Federal Campaign is scheduled to kick off here Oct. 1 with the goal of raising $120,000 before its conclusion Dec. 1.

Last year, Moody Airmen raised $109,890 for the Southwest Georgia CFC, adding to the more than $7 billion the program has raised since its creation in 1964.

"The CFC is a federal donation program for federal employees that compiles certain charities," said U.S. Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Keith Terry, Moody CFC project officer. "The biggest thing is that it's a controlled environment, so there is no pressure from the workcenter itself to contribute. We do make sure that we make 100 percent contact, so everyone in an organization has an opportunity to donate."
