Local Non-Profits Support Luke AFB Families
Over the past few years, many U.S. Air Force bases, including Luke, have been hit with budget cuts, eliminating funding for many events and human services programs. Fighter Country Partnership has stepped up to keep much-needed programs from disappearing. Fighter Country Foundation focuses on supporting programs and services at Luke Air Force Base that aid, support and honor Airmen and their families in need. Programs such as Operation Thunderbox which sends care boxes to Airmen deployed from Luke, Operation Warmheart which assists families in times of hardship and the Spouse and Family Support Fund which provides social, recreational and moral support for families during separation.
