Good Evening Arnold Air and Silver Wings Nation! With a new academic year comes new opportunities for us to give back to the community. Please read on to learn about our new Joint National Project, Joint National Fundraising Project, and Signature National Project for Silver Wings.
Information on our projects can also be found at aas-sw.org/events.
Joint National Project - Supporting Military Families
More than two million American children have had a parent deployed at least once from 2001 onwards. Military families play an important role in supporting our service members, often sacrificing a comfortable and customary lifestyle. As an organization, Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings are dedicated to taking care of our military families and giving them the support they need.
Joint National Fundraising Project - AFA
Since 1946, the AFA has been the prominent professional military and aerospace education program in support of the United States Air Force. Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings are committed to continuing the AFA’s mission of “Educate, Advocate, and Support” through donations graciously provided by the community through local and national fundraising.
Signature National Project - Mental Health Awareness
Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year. Through assistance and advocacy for organizations like the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, Best Buddies, and Active Minds, Silver Wings is working tirelessly to bring awareness and support for those with mental illness.
