Chattanooga Area Combined Federal Campaign Announces 2013 Chairman

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Dan Traynor, the Tennessee Valley Authority’s senior vice president and chief information officer, will serve as chairman of the 2013 Chattanooga Area Combined Federal Campaign.

The annual campaign gives federal employees in a 21-county area of Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina opportunities to contribute to charitable health and human service organizations.

The 2013 campaign kicks off Sept. 17 with the theme, “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” Last year’s campaign raised more than $1.9 million for local and national charitable agencies. 

“Federal employees in this area have always given generously to the CFC in both their time and money,” said Traynor. “They know the impact their gifts can have in benefiting their neighbors and communities.”

Prior to the kick off, federal employees will participate in the 21st annual Day of Caring.  About 600 volunteers will help local agencies that receive contributions from CFC by spending the day painting, building, landscaping, cleaning and cooking.

Traynor will be assisted with the campaign by other federal workers in the Chattanooga area, including Jamie King, TVA, campaign manager; Mitchell Standifer, TVA, campaign materials coordinator; John Fornicola, TVA, Local Federal Coordinating Committee chairman; and other members of the LFCC, Neal Dekich and Denise Carter, U. S. Postal Service; Janice Griffin, Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Catherine Fairchild, U. S. Bankruptcy Court; Kathy York, TVA; and Kathy Davis, TVA.

Federal employees in the Chattanooga area have raised more than $38 million for local and national charitable agencies since 1985 and have been recognized for the highest average gift per person in campaigns raising $1 million to $2 million worldwide. The Chattanooga Area Combined Federal Campaign includes about 8,600 federal employees.
