Base and union leadership often work together to improve working conditions and the effectiveness of Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, but now they are working together to help those in need.

Maj. Gen. Polly Peyer, commander of the Center, and Tom Scott, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 987, jointly signed pledge cards Oct. 9 for the Combined Federal Campaign.

The signing was a show of unity to encourage leaders and employees alike to contribute and help others.

"Even though times are tough I think it's imperative that people give to worthy causes," Scott said.

The Combined Federal Campaign officially began Oct. 7 and runs through Nov. 13. It gives all federal employees an opportunity to donate to a wide variety of charities through payroll deduction. People can choose from over 4,000 charities that have been approved for the campaign.

"No matter which organization you belong to, it should be your number one goal to help people," Peyer said. "CFC is a way to take care of people, even if it's people you don't know. This is where true partnerships come together."

The goal for the Robins campaign this year is $1.375 million, slightly more than last year's goal of $1.35 million. Last year's campaign raised $1.48 million.
