Postal Service employees committed to more than $4 million in cash pledges and 6,600 volunteer hours during the latest Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).
“The Postal Service is proud to support the Combined Federal Campaign each year. I thank all employees for their generous contributions,” said Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.
The latest tally includes more than $496,000 in pledges from employees at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC.
Headquarters surpassed its $400,000 goal by nearly 25 percent, raising roughly 10 percent more than the 2020 campaign.
Among the Postal Service’s four retail and delivery areas, Southern led with more than $886,000 in pledges. Eastern led the two processing regions, with more than $467,000 in pledges, while Atlantic topped the four logistics regions, with pledges that exceeded $244,000.
USPS received two CFC National Capital Area honors.
Claudeth Dyer, an office clerk in vehicle operations at the Southern Maryland Processing and Distribution Center, won a Hero award for her efforts in this year’s campaign, and the postmaster general’s “You Can Be the Face of Change” video won best campaign video.
The CFC is the federal government’s annual workplace charity drive. The latest campaign began last September and concluded in January.
Since its founding in 1961, the CFC has raised more than $8.5 billion for people in need.
USPS is regularly one of the top 10 fundraisers in the campaign.
