REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- Rallying from a slow start, the headquarters staffs from the Army Contracting Command and the Expeditionary Contracting Command have surpassed this year's Combined Federal Campaign goal of $50,000.

To date, the 2012 campaign has raised $52,924 in donations or 106 percent of its combined goal, said Victor L. Dubose, ACC deputy chief of staff G-2 and CFC chair.

"I want to thank each one of you who contributed for making this year's CFC a success," he said.

Dubose added that the campaign has been extended until Dec. 31 for those individuals still wishing to contribute.

"All donations must be turned in to your staff representative no later than Dec. 31 to ensure time for processing," he said.

Echoing his remarks, Maj. Gen. Camille M. Nichols, ACC commanding general, commented on the command's generosity.

"Folks, your generosity and desire to help others is inspiring," she said. "Thank you for giving and being such a great organization! May this come back to you in kind."

CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, and each year helps raise millions to support eligible nonprofit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.

It does this by "promoting and supporting philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all."
