HELPING AFAS Help Others
AN AIRMAN’S SPOUSE DONATES PART OF HER BUSINESS’S PROFITS TO AFAS
Jennifer runs an online business selling goods, and a portion of every item that she sells goes toward the Society. “I will continue this with every item I sell online,” she states. Every piece Jennifer sells means assistance for an Airman who’s going through their own rough patch. The generosity that drives Jennifer to donate to AFAS is a part of the Lehman family core values. “My family is blessed, and giving back is a priority,” she explains. “Giving back to our Air Force family is a priority.” Whether it’s unexpected bills, a hurricane, or a family emergency, an Airman who doesn’t have enough resources has AFAS to give them a hand. And fortunately, AFAS has generous donors like the Lehmans who give back selflessly because it’s a part of who they are. For Jennifer and her family, “those who need the help, should get it.” And because the Lehmans are able to help, they do so.
Jennifer Lehman and her husband, Technical Ser-
geant Richard Lehman, have been a part of the Air Force family for 18 years. Years ago, Jennifer was pregnant with their daughter while her husbandwasdeployed. The Lehmans were going through a difficult time, but they didn’t have to go through it alone. The Air Force Aid Society always stands by Air- men when they’re in need, and AFAS was there to help the Lehmans through the rough patch. Later, AFAS again stood by the Lehmans when Jennifer had breast cancer. “When we fell on hard times, we received much-needed help,” she says as she looks back on the assistance. This is why Jennifer feels strongly about being a donor, giving back to the organization that has stood by her family more than once.
“GIVING BACK TO OUR AIR FORCE FAMILY IS A PRIORITY.”
