Charity campaign launches

CFB Esquimalt/Maritime Forces Pacific,

It’s that time of year again, and I am proud to announce the launch of CFB Esquimalt’s National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign (NDWCC) 2018. This year’s campaign will run from Sept. 20 to Nov. 23 – that’s only 64 calendar days, total.

This is different from previous year’s campaigns, and the length was shortened based on the feedback from a survey that was distributed to last year’s unit reps; you spoke – and we listened. It’s a much shorter campaign to prevent donor fatigue and hopefully prevent added stress during and after the holiday season.

Preparations are currently underway to help ensure that this year we empower everyone with the knowledge and capability to give back to the community in any way possible.

This year’s campaign theme is focused on, “Giving what you can give, how you can give it, and giving until it feels good, not until it hurts.”

While giving your hard-earned dollars helps fund much-needed programs, services and research in your community, giving your valuable time, or new and gently used items that help ease suffering in the community, are also great options for giving.

Since 1994, CFB Esquimalt has contributed over $10 million to the NDWCC, and last year alone our friends and colleagues volunteered over 40,000 hours of their time in Vancouver Island communities. I am extremely proud of both these figures. I want to thank all who participated in whatever capacity they could during last year’s campaign, and to all those who continue to give of their precious time and money throughout the year.

I am confident 2018 will be another successful year for the NDWCC on the base, and a big thank you to all who have already stepped forward as unit representatives.

Marie Amoto is our campaign coordinator this year and is available to assist your campaign in any way. If you have any questions, please contact her by phone at 250-363-4322 or by email
