    OPM Recognizes the Most Successful CFC Campaigns of 2010

    Washington, DC - Today, at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director John Berry recognized 26 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) personnel and volunteers, both in the U.S. and overseas, for their outstanding success in the 2010 campaign. The 2010 CFC raised more than $281.5 million dollars for charities across the nation.

    "Federal employees show their generosity every year in the hundreds of millions of dollars they give to our nation's charities, helping those who need it most," said OPM Director John Berry. "These campaigns and individuals went above and beyond, making CFC such an enormous success. All federal workers can be proud of their accomplishments and dedication."
