Combined Federal Campaign begins
The federal government has begun its Combined Federal Campaign to raise funds. The campaign, which runs through Dec. 15, has more than 4,400 international, national and local charities that benefit various charities, including the United Way. Over the past three years, the campaign has raised almost $49 million.
Federal installations located in the Fredericksburg region are participating through the Combined Federal Campaign National Capital Area.
Last year, the Department of Defense topped its goal and raised more than $15 million.
This year’s theme is “I Make It Possible.”
