Hefner VA makes hefty donation

SALISBURY – Thanks to the generosity of the employees at the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center and its Community Based Outpatient Clinics, the hospital recently met its goal for this year’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).
CFC is the world’s largest annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas, raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (Sept. 1 to Dec. 15) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.
This year, more than $100,000 was raised by Salisbury VA Medical Center staff. Medical Center Director Kaye Green said the donation is just one more way the hospital can partner with the local community.
“Even though we’re part of the federal government, first and foremost we are part of this community. Our staff members have families here, we work here, we shop here — and we need to support our local community and I think that’s exactly what we’ve done,” she said. “I am so proud of the staff here at the Salisbury VA Medical Center for their generosity and really engaging in this community in terms of meeting and exceeding our CFC goal.”
The amount donated this year set a new standard of giving for the hospital, said Jackie Harris, Rowan County Principal Combined Federal Campaign administrator. She added, this donation was the largest she has seen from the hospital in the 22 years she’s been working with CFC.
“We are so appreciative of the support received from the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center’s Combined Federal Campaign. Many non-profit agencies here locally, statewide, nationally and internationally will greatly benefit due to their generosity,” she said. “We can always depend on the employees to reach out and help those in need. For that, we are most grateful.”
