AAFES assists fund raising

Community groups can raise funds for their worthy causes while spreading some holiday cheer as the Edwards AFB Exchange is actively soliciting partners for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s annual community gift wrap program. 
“To make the holidays a little easier, we partner with local groups to ensure gifts purchased at the Exchange are wrapped up before they even leave the store,” said Exchange general manager Charles Eaves. “Beyond offering a one-stop solution for busy military shoppers, this effort also helps raise money for local military support initiatives.”  
During peak holiday seasons, the Edwards AFB Exchange sets up tables and provides supplies that community volunteer groups can use to wrap gifts in exchange for donations. Interested organizations can contact the Edwards AFB Exchange at 661-258-1078 for information on scheduling a time to participate.
