PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The Air Force Assistance Fund campaign at Patrick AFB and Cape Canaveral AFS began Monday and will continue through May 3.

The installation goal this year is $40,945.

AFAF is an annual effort to raise funds for four charitable affiliates that provide support to Air Force family members in need; Air Force Villages, Inc.; Air Force Aid Society, Inc.; the Gen. and Mrs. Curtis E. LeMay Foundation; and Air Force Enlisted Village, Inc. These organizations help Air Force people with aid in an emergency, with educational needs or to have a secure retirement home for widows or widowers of Air Force members in need of financial assistance.
