LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- This year's Air Force Assistance Fund campaign kicked off March 23 and runs for six weeks. The annual fund drive benefits four official Air Force charities - the Air Force Aid Society, Air Force Village Foundation, Air Force Enlisted Village, and the General and Mrs. Curtis LeMay Foundation.

"These aren't charities you'll see in your CFC (Combined Federal Campaign) lineup. They are an example of Air Force people taking care of their own - Airmen Helping Airmen," said Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves, SMC commander in a base-wide memorandum.

Now in its 42th year, AFAF charities benefit active-duty, Reserve, Guard, retired Air Force members, and their surviving spouses and families. Personnel can donate by making a payroll deduction, or one-time cash or check contributions to AFAF. The funds raised go directly to the charities and are tax deductible.
