FEEA provided immediate financial assistance after the bombing to victims and their families as well as to those who did not survive. The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), a member of FEEA, merged its Federal Employees Disaster Support (FEDS) fund with FEEA to maximize efforts like the Oklahoma City scholarships. FEEA has provided more than $2.75 million in scholarships to civilian federal employees and their dependents. Federal employees who wish to contribute to FEEA can pledge #2808 during the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) this fall or visit their website at www.feea.org.
The American Federation of Government Employees, AFL-CIO, is the largest union for government employees, representing 600,000 federal workers in the United States and overseas, as well as employees of the District of Columbia. To learn more about AFGE, go to www.afge.org.
