FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii (June 6, 2023) – Members of the 413th Contracting Support Brigade earned the 2022 Combined Federal Campaign's Everest Award for exceptional performance and dedication to positively impacting the community recently here.

The Everest Award, the highest CFC recognition bestowed upon a federal agency or military command for an increase in total dollars raised and participation by 3 percent, symbolizes the 413th CSB members’ ability to reach new heights in charitable giving and community support and shows a genuine commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.

"Our success in the CFC campaign is a testament to our commitment to our community and our belief in the power of people making a difference," he said.

The 413th CSB remains committed to continuing its efforts to make a difference in the community and is currently working a mentorship program with the Hawaii National Guard Youth Challenge Academy. The 413th CSB's commitment to making a difference in the lives of others is evident based on their impressive fundraising efforts and volunteer endeavors.

“Our success lies in our people,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Scheil, the 413th CSB command sergeant major. “By putting them first, we unlock their potential, one act of service at a time. Earning the Everest Award displays the spirit of service that defines our Army and inspires us all to reach greater heights.”
