Dobbins contributes to 5.7 million pounds of donated food

The Department of Defense led all federal agencies in exceeding the philanthropic goals of this year's "Feds Feed Families" food drive campaign, which ran June 1 to Aug. 31. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the Chief Human Capital Officers Council announced in a press release that DOD led 40 government agencies, donating 2,004,613 pounds of a total 5,793,446 pounds of nonperishable food items to feed children, senior citizens and families. Members at Dobbins Air Reserve Base donated 600 pounds of non-perishable items between July 27 and Aug. 27. MUST Ministries, a non-profit organization aimed at ending poverty and homelessness, picked up the donations Sept. 6. “The message this sends to our members is the resounding power of a selfless act,” said Nesmith. “This reinforces our second core value, Service Before Self, and further strengthens Air Force pride. Serving our country is also reflected in how we serve our immediate community.” (Courtesy photo)
