Superstorm Sandy affected thousands of people on the East Coast of the United States. In response to the storm, the Department of Defense is providing aid to support disaster response and recovery. Many CFC-O charities have also mobilized staff and resources for the hardest-hit areas of east coast of the United States. If you would like to support the relief efforts, please check FEMA’s website, which lists organizations providing assistance.
For the past two years the CFC-O has run an art competition for Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) elementary school students. This year, Ms. Susan Yarwood, LFCC Vice Chair, arranged to have the beautiful artwork displayed at the Pentagon to honor the creativity of the participating students.
