AAFES News Release
GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is giving shoppers another chance to support Soldiers and Airmen in need during its second Give and Get Back donation period of the year.
Sept. 13 to 17, shoppers can donate to either Army Emergency Relief or the Air Force Assistance Fund at the register at the Grafenwoehr Exchange. For every $5 donated, shoppers receive an Exchange coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase.
“Exchange shoppers are making a real difference for Soldiers and families in need,” said retired Lt. Gen. Raymond V. Mason, AER director. “We’re grateful for such a successful partnership with the Exchange that benefits the military community.”
This is the third year that the Exchange has partnered with AER and AFAF to host the Give and Get Back campaign.
Since the Give and Get Back campaign began in 2017, Exchange shoppers have given more than $680,000 to the funds, which provide emergency assistance, sponsor educational initiatives and offer community programs that support the military community.
“The Exchange mission is to make the lives of Soldiers, Airmen and military families better,” said Exchange Director/CEO Tom Shull. “Supporting Army Emergency Relief and the Air Force Assistance Fund is a fantastic way to fulfill this mission.”
The Sept. 13 to 17 giving period is in honor of the Air Force’s 72nd birthday on Sept. 18. The third and final giving period will occur during the holiday shopping season from Dec. 6 to 10.
