VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Vandenberg is scheduled to kick off the 2010 Air Force Assistance Fund campaign here March 8 through April 2.

The AFAF is a fund-raising campaign that allows Air Force active-duty members, retirees, reservists, guardsmen, dependents and surviving spouses to provide support to others in the Air Force family.

The annual campaign supports four Air Force charities: the Air Force Enlisted Village Foundation, Air Force Village Foundation, Air Force Aid Society and the General and Mrs. Curtis E. Lemay Foundation. These four charities help Air Force associates with aid in emergency situations and educational needs, and provides widowers of Air Force members a secure retirement home.

"This AFAF campaign is unique in that the four charities it supports raises funds specifically for Air Force active-duty personnel and retirees," said 2nd Lt. Jason Brosseau, Vandenberg's AFAF project lead. "This campaign exemplifies the wingman concept: Airmen helping Airmen."
In previous years, the AFAF campaign ran for six weeks at Vandenberg, as opposed to this year's four-week campaign.

"The AFAF campaign period is condensed this year to keep the fund-raising drive fresh in the minds of the base community, which avoids the campaign from going stagnant," Lieutenant Brosseau said.

Affiliates of the AFAF rely solely on voluntary contributions. Throughout the campaign period, contributions can be made to the AFAF through Vandenberg's unit representatives.
