The 2015 Robins Combined Federal Campaign season ends next Friday. As of Nov. 10, the total pledge was at $130,623. The goal is $1 million.

"With just days left to participate in this season's active three-week campaign, I encourage each member of our community to reach out, support and change the lives of those around us who need help throughout the year," Bobby Munda, Robins 2015 CFC chair. "This is a great way to give back when we've been given so much."

Carolyn Edwards, a DLA Aviation inventory management specialist and demand planner, has been giving to the annual campaign for the last 20 years.

"I give because it's for a good cause," said Edwards.  "There are so many different organizations out there that we can contribute to. Eventually all our families experience some kind of need, whether it's due to illness, hunger or other things. 

"Being that I'm blessed, I want to be a blessing to others. Families go through different experiences, and we need each other," She added. "Any way we can help - no matter how small or large - it's just a willingness from the heart."

Contributing for more than 20 years, Karen Vernon,     a co-worker, agreed and said she contributes for           religious reasons.

"The CFC has already provided much of the legwork, making it very convenient for us to give," she said. 

Virginia Schneider, unit safety rep and VPP Steering Committee member with the 561st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, has been giving for three years. 

"I believe in giving to those who haven't had life as easy as I have, and it makes me feel good knowing I'm able to do that," she said. "My childhood was full of happy Christmases ... I think every employee at Robins should follow their hearts and give to a charity that means something to them."
