Air Force Assistance Fund set to kick off at March Field

Air Force Contributors

The Air Force Assistance Fund is available to Air Force Guard, Reserve, and active duty personnel.

There are four organizations that receive support from the Air Force Assistance Fund drive.

The Air Force Aid Society is the official charity of the Air Force. Airmen can visit the Air Force Aid Society coordinator at their base and apply for grants or loans for emergency medical bills, car repair, travel to be with a sick family member, even food, rent or utilities.

The Air Force Village Indigent Widows’ Fund provides widows or widowers of retired career Air Force officers with affordable living options.

The Air Force Enlisted Village Indigent Widows’ fund has provided homes for more than 1,600 surviving spouses since 1975 at its north Florida facilities.

The General and Mrs. Curtis LeMay Foundation provides nationwide financial assistance to widows of all retired Air Force personnel. Funds are given with “no strings attached.”

“Last year, March ARB utilized over $25,000 of aid and we as a base donated $0. Please join us in ensuring this never happens again. I encourage you to talk to one of our many AFAF representatives across the base,” said Capt. Daniel P. Diemer, executive officer, 912th Air Refueling Squadron.

March representatives:

  • OG: Senior Airman Victor Pineda, 951-655-2525
  • MXG: Capt Melissa Burton, 951-655-3767
  • MSG: Maj Anna Ruiz, 951-655-5955
