Since the beginning of the 2007 Combined Federal Campaign many donations have poured in from Airman of all ranks and civilians base-wide. The following are some reasons for contributing to the CFC:

"Giving back is my biggest thing. We've been blessed, so we do what we can to give back. The CFC just makes it a convenient way to do that."

Master Sgt. Thomas Williams
92nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, aircraft section NCOIC

"I donate because I feel it's important for me to donate to an important cause. The CFC is a trusted campaign and I know for sure that the money goes where it is supposed to go."

Staff Sgt. Laronica Docken
92nd Mission Support Squadron, separations NCOIC

"I donate to the CFC because I think we, in the United States, are pretty well off. So, I think it's our responsibility to use that where we can."

Capt. William Phillips
93rd Air Refueling Squadron, A Flight commander

"I figure that I have it a lot better than others and it's nice to be able to help people out. I know there are a lot of people who have money problems and I like to do what I can to help."

Senior Airman David Jones
92nd Security Forces Squadron, vehicles NCOIC

"I wanted to help. I saw that others were donating and I thought that it was something that I should do as well. I feel like I should help out where I can, if I can."

2nd Lt. Erik Greendyke
36th Rescue Flight, scheduler

"It's always good to give to the less fortunate. The CFC is a great way for people to donate to a better cause, whether it's to fund research, feed the hungry, clothe the needy or enhance the environment."
