All monetary donations received for Hurricane Michael Emergency Relief are restricted for hurricane relief only and will be used to purchase necessary emergency relief items here in the local area and will be transported to the Tyndall AFB/Panama City area to help active duty airmen and their families, retirees, Air National Guard, Reservists, and civilians who work at Tyndall AFB—the greater Air Force family.
Other Ways to Help
The Air Force Enlisted Village is partnering with the local community and local military installations to collect and deliver items to Tyndall AFB and the surrounding areas devastated by Hurricane Michael.
Air Force Enlisted Village is currently working with a local military spouse who offered her home as a shipping destination after military spouses created gift registries at Target and Amazon to help those in need. Air Force Enlisted Village is picking up over 16 pallets and will deliver them to the Tyndall AFB area. The registries are open and all items can be shipped directly to Air Force Enlisted Village, c/o Hurricane Michael Relief, 92 Sunset Lane, Shalimar, FL 32579
