Need to know

Two women at a desk

Help wanted. Link wants to hear from Postal Service employees whose lives have been touched by the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).

For example, during last year’s campaign, Link highlighted:

• Bernice Redden, a Clearwater, FL, customer services supervisor who credits several CFC charities for their help after her son was born with cerebral palsy

• Stephen Waldorf, a Detroit acting multimedia specialist who benefitted from CFC organizations after being diagnosed with polio

• Deborah Valentine, a Washington, DC, retail associate who supports several charities, including one that helped a relative beat addiction

• Doris Taylor, a Charlotte, NC, general clerk and longtime CFC volunteer

If you’ve benefited from a CFC charity, too, let Link know.

Send an email to and tell the team about your CFC experiences. You could be featured in CFC coverage later in the fall.

World Post Day. Tuesday, Oct. 9 is World Post Day, an annual commemoration of the founding anniversary of the Universal Postal Union, the United National agency that coordinates postal policies among member nations.

Today, the main purpose of World Post Day is to raise awareness of the postal system’s role in the everyday lives of people and businesses, as well as its contribution to global social and economic development.
