HEIDELBERG, Germany -- The Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas in Europe completed its campaign for 2011, Dec. 15. The U.S. Army Europe’s campaign contributed more than $5 million to the overall $14 million raised by the European Command.

CFC-O was extended from Dec. 2, 2011 which allowed USAREUR to reach its goal of $2.5 million from $1.7 million and exceeded it by 100 percent.

Forty percent of USAREUR Soldiers and Department of the Army civilians participated in the campaign for 2011, a five percent increase from the previous year.

Many of the charities who benefit from the CFC-O support reintegration programs for service members overseas, as well as other programs for veterans, active duty service members and their families.

Contributors had the opportunity also elect to support their local overseas military communities through the Family Support and Youth Programs. Donations to FSYP are returned to the installation to support quality of life programs.
