The US Air Force  in DuBois is proud to present

Aid for Afghan Allies

Sunny 106 is teaming up with the US Air Force DuBois to help Afghan refugees arriving with little or nothing with them. These people helped our troops. Let’s return the favor.

 

**UPDATE: Thank you so much to everyone who helped donate to the Aid for Afghan Allies cause, giving back to the refugees who helped our troops in Afghanistan and who are now in our country with little to nothing at all. Together as a community, we raised more than $7,000 in gift cards for these refugee families, along with donations of new and used clothing, toiletries, and toys that completely filled a 16-foot moving truck.

That truck will leave for the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst military base in New Jersey, where many of those Afghan refugees are being temporarily housed.
Again, thank you to everyone who donated and helped!***
