Military Community Involvement

Due to our deep rooted history with Scott Air Force base, we have a very large involvement in numerous community events on and around the base.  Our largest sponsorship contribution is to the Annual Base Picnic, where we also have a booth and bring one of our Hummers.  This event is only a small portion of our overall involvement with Scott Air Force Base.  Some of the other events that we sponsor are:

  • 126th Air Refueling Wing Family Day
  • 126th Air Refueling Wing Kids on Guard
  • Annual Fitness Sponsor
  • Annual Golf Program
  • Annual Youth Sports Program
  • Arts and Craft Show at the Library
  • Bowling Program
  • Breakfast with Santa
  • Bridal Expo
  • Brunch with Santa
  • Fuel Up Program
  • Holiday Card Competition
  • Month of the Military Child Youth Fair
  • Operation Kid Comfort
  • Outdoor Recreation Open House
  • Paint & Pour
  • Pre-Teen Selfies Camp
  • Youth Sports Program

In addition to these great on base events, we also support military related events outside of Scott Air Force Base.  Some of these include Military Appreciation Night at the St. Louis Blues, Salute to Scott AFB Family Picnic, St. Louis Navy League Golf Tournament, the Air Force Ball, All Academies Ball and the USO Mud Run.  We also help to fund the 126th Air Refueling Wing College Scholarship, 126th ARW Morale Fund, and Scott Spouses Club Scholarships.  Last but not least, we support the St. Louis Fisher House which serves as a “home away from home” for families and caregivers of our military men and women who are undergoing extensive medical treatment and/or rehabilitation.

Another area in which we support Scott Air Force Base is through financial education.  We are a proud supporter of Military Saves Week, actively encouraging our military members to save and offering suggestions and special promotions to help them meet that goal.  In addition, we work with the Youth Center to provide programming for a budgeting fair for teens called Military Teens Save.
