Hello Coast Survey,
It’s that time of year again! As many of you are aware, we are in the midst of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) season. If you are new to CFC, it is a fantastic way to support something you care deeply about. What is your cause? Whether it’s children in need, international organizations, animals, or the environment, this annual federal program highlights those that are critically dependent on our donations. This year, the campaign runs until January 19, 2019. Please consider participating.
Thank you to Teresa Fleisher of the Coast Survey Development Lab for volunteering as both the Coast Survey and National Ocean Service CFC coordinator. You can reach out to Teresa if you have any questions.
