Exchange Partnering with Army and Air Force to Support Relief Funds
Posted on June 19, 2017

DALLAS – The Exchange is joining forces with the Army and Air Force to support service members and their families in need.

As the Army and Air Force mark their respective birthdays, from June 14 to 18 and from Sept. 14 to 18, Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers can donate at the register to either the Army Emergency Relief or Air Force Assistance Funds. For every $5 donated, shoppers will receive a coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase.

“Organizations such as the Army Emergency Relief Fund rely on the generosity and kindness of others,” said LTG(R) Raymond V. Mason, director of the Army Emergency Relief Fund. “Working with the Exchange is a game changer and will benefit countless Soldiers and their families for years to come.”

Shoppers may donate in $5 increments to either cause. Coupons received for donations may be redeemed in store or online June 19-25 (for the June 14-18 event) or Sept. 19-25 (for the Sept. 14-18 event). There is no limit to how many coupons a shopper may receive, and the coupons may be combined.

“We are honored to partner with the Exchange in this effort,” said Lt Gen(R) John D. Hopper, chief executive officer of the Air Force Aid Society. “This collaboration will help many Airmen and their families in their time of need and improve their quality of life.”
