HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – With one month remaining in the installation’s Combined Federal Campaign, more than $19,000, or approximately 40 percent, has been collected toward the $50,000 goal.

The last day to donate to Hanscom AFB’s CFC is Jan. 13. The theme for this year is “Give Happy.” 

“As the Combined Federal Campaign draws to a close next month, let’s seize this opportunity to make a lasting difference together,” said Master Sgt. Christopher Crean, installation CFC co-coordinator. “Your contribution reaches far beyond the workplace, it resonates in the lives we touch and the communities we uplift.”

Donors have four ways to give: pledge online, complete a paper pledge form, the CFC Giving mobile app, or text “Donate” to 978-487-5678. Federal employees can also pledge volunteer hours to charities that accept them.

Participants may choose to give a one-time donation or deduct a certain amount from each paycheck. To learn more about the ways to donate, visit

Among the charities donors may choose is Friends of Family Services, a 501 (c)(3) private organization.

Hanscom AFB personnel are encouraged to contact an office keyworker for assistance with submitting a pledge. For those unsure who their unit’s keyworker is, contact Tech. Sgt. Katsiaryna Durant, installation CFC co-coordinator, at or Crean at
