In times of need, the 142nd Fighter Wing Community Foundation is dedicated to providing human services by supporting and assisting local military members and their families, veterans and citizens from our surrounding community.
Local Military Members and their Families
We provide zero interest loans/grants for qualifying Oregon National Guard families experiencing financial crisis due to loss of employment, problems related to long deployments away from home, or other personal and family misfortunes.
We provide international calling cards to wounded soldiers being cared for in Germany at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LARMC), so they have the opportunity to stay connected to their family and and loved ones back home. We also provide long distance calling cards to our local troops leaving on deployments for destinations all over the world.
We organized an effort called "Operation Warm and Fuzzy" to obtain new and used clothing through donations from citizens and businesses in our community. These donated and purchased goods were shipped to hospitalized soldiers overseas as well as veteran support organizations here at home. Public support for this endeavor was tremendous and greatly appreciated by those who received your gifts, especially seriously injured soldiers evacuated from combat zones that were air lifted to support hospitals in Europe with nothing more than the uniform they were wearing.
Making a difference for our troops and veterans
The 142 FW Community Foundation is a non-profit organization designated as a publicly
supported organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
