It is Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) donation time again!

When picking a CFC charity, I always try to pick one where my money will go the furthest – meaning the return will be in multiple areas. Over the years I’ve chosen different ones based on what I was interested in then.  This year, I’m choosing Puppies Behind Bars because of the multiple areas of return for my donation dollars.

My money will

1. assist prisoners to provide basic socialization training for a puppies

2. give prisoners someone to be responsible for and love for almost 2 years per puppy

3. serve as a service dog to a returning soldier or become a professional dog such as those who work with law enforcement  (At the end of the basic training, the puppies will go back to the school for testing; if they pass, the puppies are given to returning soldiers who are in need of service dogs or receive further training to become professional dogs such as those who work in law enforcement and other areas.)

4. become a family dog for a blind child (if the dogs don’t pass, they are donated to blind children.)

So, my donation makes an impact in people’s lives over and over and over again.  If you want to donate to CFC this year but don’t have a specific charity in mind, check out Puppies Behind Bars to see if it is a good fit for you.  Link: CFC # 11902
