DEFENSE WORKERS GIVE GENEROUSLY, EVEN DURING TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES

 WARREN, Mich., Nov. 30 ~PRNewswire~ -- Thirty-eight Department of Defense Agencies of South Eastern Michigan contributed almost $363,000 to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), under the direction of Maj. Gen. Joseph Raffiani Jr., the Military Team Chairman for the Combined Federal Campaign.
 At the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Command (TACOM), where Raffiani is commander, contributions to CFC reached close to the $239,000 mark this year.
 "This total exceeds our overall goal of $210,000 for CFC, in 1992, by 13.5 percent," said Marsha Alfafara, account executive for TACOM's CFC.
 TACOM acts as the liaison for the other South Eastern Michigan Defense Agencies by providing literature, training and support, and also, reports the combined total of the defense agencies to the United Fund.
 "The vibrant spirit of military and civilian employees working in TACOM and the Department of Defense external agencies, was undaunted by our tough economic times. Because of their generous support, more than 700 CFC agencies are able to serve the hungry and hol?ess, the elderly, families under stress, conduct research, provide substance abuse therapy and education, nursing visits and many more services. As a result of their determination to make a positive change, we are building a stronger community," Alfafara said.
 CFC is a fund-raising drive for hundreds of local, national and international charitable organizations.
 The CFC solicitation drive is conducted in the workplace for federal employees in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
