Letter carrier Shearly Shawn took on the task of encouraging Montgomery County's post office workers to give generously through their worksite campaign this month as the CFC coordinator, organizing presentations at over 20 Montgomery County locations which included CSA staff on the program. "NALC 3825 actively supports the CFC and we try to make sure our members know how to give and give generously," said Shearly. "And we support CSA because they help working families- including some of our members." In addition to CSA, Shearly also invited speakers from A Wider Circle, a Montgomery County-based charity helping homeless families move to self-sufficiency which partners with CSA's Building Futures program, and L-Dubs Love, founded by a retired postal worker in memory of her daughter, who died of cancer, to help families of children with cancer come to NIH for care.
