TOP STORY >>AFAF campaign nears end

By Tech. Sgt. Arlo Taylor

There is still time for Air Force members to show their “Commitment to Caring” and participate in the Air Force Assistance Fund Drive that ends April 13.

The base has already raised more than 120 percent of its monetary goal for the four charitable organizations benefiting active duty, Reserve, Air National Guard and retired Air Force people and their families, including surviving spouses and their families.
Every active duty member has the opportunity to contribute via a one-time cash donation or by initiating a payroll deduction plan. Reserve and Air National Guard personnel, as well as civilians, are welcome to contribute cash to the campaign.

If we achieve both the monetary goal and the 50 percent participation rate, the base receives up to $2,500 to benefit the base community.

The installation commander decides how these funds can best be used to benefit the community.

“It is up to every Airman to take care of other Airmen by participating in the Air Force Assistance Fund. Whether you donate only one dollar, it is taking care of our own,” said Brig Gen. Kip Self, 314th Airlift Wing commander. For more information, contact a squadron project officers or Maj. Elizabeth Clay at 425-6058.
