MISAWA AB – While Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers are gift-hunting and preparing for the holidays, they can also lend a helping hand to Airmen, Guardians and military families facing difficulties by donating the Air Force Assistance Fund (AFAF) at checkout at the Misawa Exchange and online.

Shoppers at the Misawa BX and Express can donate to AFAF in increments of $1, $5, $10 or more when checking out. Online donations can be made in $5 increments at ShopMyExchange.com.

Since the Exchange partnered with the AFAF in 2017, military shoppers have donated more than $2.3 million to help Airmen, Guardians, retirees and their families in need. Year-round giving at the Exchange was introduced in 2020.

“The holidays can be a particularly difficult time of year,” said Exchange Director/CEO Tom Shull. “Every dollar Exchange shoppers donate helps support service members and families who may be struggling.”

AFAF provides financial assistance, sponsor educational scholarship grants for military family members and offer community programs to make life better for service members and their families. To learn more about the Exchange’s support for the funds, visit here.
