from 412th Test Wing Public Affairs6/29/2015 - EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Base volunteers at the Airman's Attic meet with John Fergione (center), former test pilot and president of the Edwards AFB Civilian-Military Support Group. He dropped by June 25 to present a couple donations on behalf of Civ-Mil. The organization donated a laptop computer and a printer to the Airman's Attic. The Edwards AFB Civilian-Military Support Group exists to create a friendly association between civic leaders and military personnel at Edwards. Civ-Mil acts as a host group when needed and finds annual service projects to improve the general quality of life on base for Airmen.
Four programs the management at Edwards AFB administers to aid the younger members of the Edwards community are:
Child Car Seats: Used to provide portable infant car seats to financially struggling first-time parents,
Emergency Relief Fund: Used for emergency situations, such as airfare for a death in the family, car repairs, rent, food, utilities and other related expenses,
Exceptional Family Member Support: Used for the purchase of gasoline cards for traveling to medical centers outside of the local area,
Holiday Meal Program: Used to provide holiday gift baskets for families.
In 2013, thanks to donations we received, the Edwards AFB Civ-Mil Support Group was able to donate $8,500.00 to these programs. This amount was increased to $10,000.00 in October, 2014.
