VANCE AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. -- The Vance 2017 Combined Federal Campaign kicked off with an information fair at the Community Chapel Activity Center, Nov. 1.

Several local charities that benefit from CFC donations were present to showcase how contributions are used.

Senior Vance leaders completed CFC donation forms.

Among the donors were: Col. Darrell Judy, 71st Flying Training Wing commander; Col. Lee Gentile, 71st FTW vice commander; Col. Paul Johnson, 71st Operations Group commander; Lt. Col. Mike Volkerding, 71st FTW director of staff; and Chief Master Sgt. Jeffrey Wilson, 71st FTW command chief.

“The Combined Federal Campaign is one of the largest workplace giving campaigns in the world and the men and women of Air Education and Training Command have graciously supported this program for many decades,” wrote Judy, in an email to Team Vance.

“I am confident we will continue that tradition,” he added.

Last week, the AETC commander, Lt. Gen. Darryl Roberson, contacted Airmen throughout AETC by email.

“Participation in CFC is completely voluntary, but we will ensure 100 percent contact,” he wrote. “I am confident that once again AETC members will rise to the occasion and seize the opportunity to make a positive difference for those in need.”
Roberson added, “This is our chance to make a meaningful impact on our communities. Thank you for your outstanding support!”

The CFC at Vance will continue through Nov. 30.
