AZ Post 96 donates $1,150 to Luke AFB families

Surprise, AZ

Joseph Q. Johnson Post 96 held a successful fundraising project over Veterans Day weekend at Sam’s Club and Fry’s Grocery store at Cotton & Greenway in Surprise, Ariz. The members voted to donate twenty $50 Fry’s gift cards to the Luke Airman Readiness Center as the post has done before. This $1,000 donation is the largest the post has done, thanks to the hard work of Post Fundraising Chair Kelly Donlevy. In addition, three $50 Fry’s gift cards were donated in loving memory of April Kohl, wife of Post Sr. Vice Commander Arnold Kohl. April passed suddenly on Nov. 3.
