They Discuss the impact exchange shoppers donations have made, What AAFES did differently in 2020 that bought a significant increase in funding for both the Air Force Aid Society, and Army Emergency Relief, and why it’s important to shop at the exchange, also they discuss how shoppers can still make a difference.
If you are new to the Airmen Helping Airmen series, we break down the who, what, and why of the Air Force Aid Society (AFAS).
#AFAS is the official charity of the United States Air Force and operates as a nonprofit organization.
Through its three Programs they support the Air Force mission by providing worldwide emergency assistance to Air Force members and their families, sponsoring education assistance programs, and offering a variety of base community enhancement programs that impact member and family welfare.
#AFAS operates worldwide at every major USAF installation. The Society’s programs to provide relief loans and grants are administered, in part, by the USAF Airman and Family Readiness Centers located at those bases.
We are grateful for your continued partnership in support of our Airmen.
