7/31/2012 - DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. -- Members of the 94th Airlift Wing Equal Opportunity Office and Veteran's Empowerment Organization of Georgia met on July 27 to load up 202 pounds of food collected as part of the Feds Feed Families initiative outside building 838 on base.
The 202 pounds of food had been collected in bins around base, according to Capt. Darrell Bogan, 94th Airlift Wing equal opportunity director. In addition to the food, Bogan also collected clothing and shoes and other useful items.
"Last year Dobbins ARB collected 600lbs of food," said Bogan. "In order to beat that goal we need to collect 357lbs of food for the month of August. Please continue to encourage those around you to participate in the worthy cause."
Blue collection bins have been placed by 94th Airlift Wing equal opportunity specialists in buildings 838 and 727, the Base Exchange and the Dobbins Inn. The final collection will occur at the end of August.
The food collected in August will be donated to the Atlanta Food Bank.
