The Robins 2013 Air Force Assistance Fund campaign has reached its goal with donations totaling $79,432.

"A tremendous thank you is in order to the entire Robins installation for your support and contributions to the 2013 Air Force Assistance Fund Campaign. This year was truly an all hands in effort as units from across Robins worked hard to make our 2013 goal," said 1st Lt. Gregory Cappuzzo, the campaign's installation project officer. "We, the Airmen of Robins Air Force Base, thank all of the personnel who generously volunteered their time, financial assistance and support from all levels of leadership as we once again made the campaign a tremendous success."

The six-week campaign, with the theme, "Commitment to Caring," raises money for charitable affiliates that provide support within the Air Force family, and includes the Air Force Aid Society, Air Force Villages Charitable Foundation, the LeMay Foundation and Air Force Enlisted Village.

In 2012 through the AFAS, the official charity of the Air Force, Robins was able to provide 116 forms of emergency loan assistance and four grants.
