One man’s discard is often another man’s treasure. That’s certainly the case at the Airman’s Attic in Bldg. 914 at 650 Ninth St.

The Airman’s Attic is open to airmen in the ranks of airman basic through staff sergeant and first and second lieutenants, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The last Thursday of each month is All Ranks Day. Patrons can get 20 items per family. The non-profit accepts donations of household goods, furniture, appliances, toys and gently used clothing. The organization doesn’t accept old TVs, computers or car seats.

Donated items should include all parts and pieces and be in good working order.The uniform loan locker is open to all active-duty ID cardholders.Beth Zollman, Airman’s Attic’s secretary/treasurer, said people’s time is also a welcomed donation.

“We have a database program to track all volunteer hours and can provide proof on demand,” she said. Base ID cardholders 18 and older can volunteer.

The next time you want to rid yourself of unwanted items that are in good condition or want to volunteer to make a difference, consider the Airman’s Attic and help a military member.
