612 ABS paints orphanage
Twenty-three members of Joint Task Force-Bravo’s 612th Air Base Squadron volunteered to spend afternoon painting buildings at the Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe Orphanage, Dec. 11, 2013. The event was organized by U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jessica Clemente, Staff Sgt. Ramiro Garza, and Staff Sgt. Claudia Thurner, and paint and supplies were purchased using funds garnered from a unit fundraiser. Support from the 612 ABS is critical for the orphanage, as it receives no government funding; often the 612 ABS is the only provider for supplies to the orphanage. In addition to projects such as assisting with painting buildings, the 612 ABS members provide monthly birthday gifts for the children at the orphanage, as well as donating much-needed day to day supplies such as soap, laundry detergent, socks for the children’s school uniforms, and other essential items.
