Dear ACFC Covered Employee,


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Welcome to the December 2009 ACFC News and Promotions E-Newsletter.  
 
It's hard to believe this year is coming to an end.  Thanksgiving is behind us and the excitement of the holidays fills the air.  One thing we all learned to do better this year was to spend our money wisely and the ACFC wants to help you save more money with a full page of money-saving opportunities for you and your family.  You'll find a list of eateries where kids eat free, websites for online coupons, and special discounts available to Verizon associates. Just visit the
ACFC website and click on the link below the piggy bank full of money you'll be saving.
 
You'll find more money-savings tools and tips from the ACFC in a special Clip 'n Save Toolkit that will be available after the first of the year.  Be sure to visit the ACFC website in January to take advantage of this special promotion. Please remember that supplies are limited so the ACFC asks that you only request promotional items that apply to you or your immediate family.
 
 
Don't forget that the Backup Care $15.00 co-pay is being waived for the entire month of December, making this a totally free benefit for the month.
 
Be sure to visit the new Holiday Careville where you'll find the information and resources you need for a balanced and healthy work/life.

The ACFC wishes everyone a very safe and happy holiday season!

 the ACFC        November 2009

Dear ACFC Covered Employee,
 
 
 
 
 
 
Welcome to the November 2009 ACFC News and Promotions E-Newsletter.  What a glorious time of year!  The fall colors signal the start of the holiday season, beginning with Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is a special holiday in so many ways. Not only is it a day to give thanks to our founding fathers (and mothers), but it also gives us all a day to reflect on how much we have to give thanks for in our own lives, and to spend time with our families.  Of course, we are all thankful for the abundance of food on Thanksgiving day. 
 
Featured this month is the Flu Awareness Kit. The ACFC is providing some essential tools to help you protect yourself and your family from colds and flu this Fall and Winter season. Visit the ACFCcares website, from home or work, for all the latest information, and a preparedness guide, on the H1N1 flu.
 
Check back later in the month for other great books and resources, and upcoming links to Kids Eat Free resources.  You'll find information about restaurants that offer free kids' meals to help make those special eating-out occasions affordable.  
 
Please remember that supplies are limited so the ACFC asks that you only request promotional items that apply to you or your immediate family.

The Great American Smokeout
Life 411
Another important event in November is the Great American Smokeout, held each year by the American Cancer Society. This year the event will be on November 19, 2009.  The day is set aside to help smokers quit smoking, and quit using tobacco products, for at least one day, with the hope that they will quit completely.
 
V-Z Life is supporting this effort with their monthly Life411 Promo: Becoming-and-Staying-Tobacco Free. Learn about ways to deal with difficult conversations about smoking, ways to quit, and get your own Smoking Cessation Booklet.
