Hosting a Fund and Food Drive has become a great way for our community to impact our mission to feed individuals and families in need across Alabama! Every grocery item donated helps. Every dollar donated provides an additional 6 ½ pounds of assistance directly to those who are struggling to put food on the table.
Communities, businesses, clubs, schools and individuals continually display their pride in ownership, and empathy for the MAFB mission by hosting countless Fund and Food Drives on our behalf…many of which we are unaware of until the proceeds are delivered.
There are more than a few Food & Fund Drives which have become annual events. Considering how many and how widely these events differ, Independent Food & Fund Raisers are viewed by our communities as a fun, social way to volunteer individual time and talents to a truly worthy mission. That said, the food drives that take our hearts are the children who have birthday parties and ask party goers to bring nonperishable food instead of presents…and then donate them in support of our mission.
We’ve put together a Fund & Food Drive Information Sheet, which provides some guidance and even a way to let us know how many MAFB boxes and/or barrels you want to use. When we are presented with folks who are feel they might not be quite ready to host their own drive, but want to anyway, we can frequently provide opportunities to support a current drive, which is being promoted here.

Event: Glenn Miller Holiday Concert
Date: December 12, 7pm
Location: 251 Montgomery St, Montgomery, AL 36104
Description: The Christmas season is upon us again which means the annual Glenn Miller Christmas concert is almost here. The “Airmen of Note” of the United Stated Air Force Band are scheduled to perform at the Davis Theater on the Troy University Montgomery campus, Dec. 12, beginning at 7 pm.
In December of 1942, the United States was at war and Capt. Glenn Miller, who was a well-known musician and band leader placed his music career on hold to serve in the US Army Air Force (AAF).
In 1982, Air University revived the concert for its fortieth anniversary. Air University and the city of Montgomery jointly sponsored a free Christmas concert to commemorate Miller’s 1942 event. It commemorates Glenn Miller’s role in lifting the morale of American servicemen during one of America’s darkest hours and honored the hundreds of thousands of American troops who have served and still service in the U.S. Armed Forces.
