Final week for AFAF

This is the final week for this year's Air Force Assistance Fund (AFAF) campaign drive, which will officially end April 18th.

This campaign raises much-needed funds for four official Air Force charities. These charities are chartered to assist our fellow Airmen, which includes Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Retired personnel and our families in times of need.

To put in perspective what AFAF provides to Ellsworth, we only need to look at last year's contributions.

During the 2006 campaign, Ellsworth contributed $42,651 to the Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) alone. Our return on the investment is substantial. Ellsworth's Airmen received over $176,000 in AFAS support last year.

Is it worth it to donate? Ask anyone who has received support through AFAS or has a family member living at either of the Air Force Villages or the Air Force Enlisted Village and you will find the answer is a resounding yes.

If every Airman in the 28th Bomb Wing contributed $1.25 per month for one year, then we would reach our 2007 goal of $46,151.

The campaign needs your support to get there. In the final week of the campaign, I encourage you to find your unit POC and contribute to the AFAF.
