2021 Special Solicitation: Winter Storm Shirley

SPECIAL SOLICITATION: WINTER STORM SHIRLEY2021 special solicitation announced through april 9 to help those affected in texas, with two hands holding and helping


The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced in March, 2021 that the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) would reopen to support charities serving and affected by Winter Storm Shirley in the Texas and surrounding areas, in response to President Biden having declared a major disaster in the region. This Special Solicitation ran through April 9, 2021.

Over 6,000 charities that participated in the 2020 CFC were be eligible to receive additional gifts from generous federal employees who wished to pledge immediate aid and relief to those impacted by the severe winter weather. Gifts were, and will continue to, be distributed to charities as early as May 2021, to help them meet the increased demand for resources and support from those in need.

Gifts pledged to charities in Texas and other affected areas would empower them to do what they do best: benefiting all of our communities locally, nationally, and around the world during this time of great need.


Thank you for supporting charities and beneficiaries through the Combined Federal Campaign!
