Help Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings Fundraise for Air Force Aid Society
This year, Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings students across the Nation are actively raising funds for the Air Force Aid Society, which is The Official Charity of the Air Force. The last time your organization did this was two years ago, and we raised more than $16,500.00 for serving airmen and their families. This year, the national staffs have established an ambitious goal of $20,000.00, and we need your help!
Ask any senior officer or non-commissioned officer in the Air Force and they will tell you that the Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) Provides critically important services to our airmen when the need is greatest; in fact, hundreds of airmen and their families are being supported around the world by this great organization right now. We encourage you to take a look at the AFAS website today at https://www.afas.org.
This year, the chapter and squadron donating the most during this fund raising project will send a representative with all expenses paid to Washington DC in April to present a check on behalf of Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings on stage at the Air Force Charity Ball. This is always a fantastic event where hundreds of senior officers and enlisted airmen and leaders in industry gather for a night of giving. Two years ago when Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings presented their check, the room erupted in a standing ovation! Please help them get there again.
To help your favorite squadron or chapter and to ensure funds are credited properly to Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings, it is important that you only use the following link to donate. This link was provided by AFAS for the exclusive use of AAS/SW and every nickel you donate will be used for our effort.
