About 700 federal employees will work in service agencies on Friday during the Greater Chattanooga Area Combined Federal Campaign's 21st Annual Day of Caring.
Employees provide hands-on assistance for various requested projects - such as painting, building, cleaning, landscaping and cooking - to 49 projects at 39 area non-profit service agencies that receive contributions from the Combined Federal Campaign.
The Greater Chattanooga Area Combined Federal Campaign includes about 8,600 Federal employees in 21 counties in East Tennessee, Northeast Alabama, Northwest Georgia and Western North Carolina. Since 1987, gifts have totaled more than $38 million.
Each year, federal employees have the opportunity to contribute to charitable, health and human service organizations of their choice through the Combined Federal Campaign. Established 51 years ago as a result of President Kennedy's efforts, the Combined Federal Campaign has become the nation's leading workplace giving program, raising more money for charity than any other annual employee-giving program.
