HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah – The Airmen Helping Airmen program is a joint effort between the Airman and Family Readiness Center and 419th Fighter Wing first sergeants. The AHA team manages a database with more than 70 volunteers within the wing offering a range of services – home repairs, auto work, snow removal, computer fixes, and even pet-sitting.
The initiative was originally designed as a resource for families of deployed Airmen, but can be utilized during any time of need, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to give military families the option to save money on time and labor by utilizing the skills of volunteers in the database. However, in most cases, such as home repairs, the requester must still cover the cost for parts.
The A&FRC encourages new 419th Airmen to sign up for AHA during their Newcomers briefings, but others can join by calling A&FRC at (801) 775-2422. Volunteers are asked to describe what service they can provide, their availability, and how far they are willing to drive.
