Defense Department employees postwide donated food and other non-perishable items in support of the sixth annual Feds Feed Families Food Drive campaign Friday at the Army Community Services office located inside the Rivers Building. Story
The Agriculture Department's annual "Feds Feed Families" food drive began June 1, and officials have requested the Defense Department's help with logistical support and food donations. Story
While the Defense Department is appreciative of all employees who embrace the spirit of giving during this campaign, it gives special recognition to employees who make large contributions. This year, Hall of Fame acknowledgement is given in the following three levels: 250 pounds for Hall of Fame recognition; 500 pounds for Gold level recognition, and 1,000 pounds and over for Platinum level recognition. Please note: contribution totals can be cumulative.
Nominations into the Hall of Fame must be made and verified by the agency's chair. To submit a Hall of Fame nomination, send information by email with name of person donating, agency/Organization, mailing address, total pounds donated, date(s) and photo and caption (if desired) with the subject: Hall of Fame Nomination.
