ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The 139th Airlift Wing (AW) is closing in on their annual workplace charity
campaign goal for 2016 of $40,000, working with the local United Way and
other local federal agencies under the umbrella of the Combined Federal
Campaign (CFC).

"The 139th has raised $22,045 in 2016," said Master Sgt. Tia Farley, a 139th
AW CFC Loan Executive.

Within the 139th AW overall contribution goal, the Wing has a $28,000
