The Army Emergency Relief section at Fort Knox would like to thank everyone who participated in making the Army Emergency Relief 2012 Campaign a success. We met our goal of 100 percent contact with Soldiers and retirees. Total contributions were $199,432 for the 2012 Campaign. We appreciate the Garrison Command’s support of the Army Emergency Relief 2012 Campaign. A special thank you to the commands, senior unit project leaders and the unit representatives who made the 100 percent contact to educate the Fort Knox Community about how they can “Help the Army Take Care of Its Own.”
Army Emergency Relief is a non-profit private organization that assists active duty Soldiers, Army National Guard and Army Reserve Soldiers who are on continuous active duty (Title 10, USC) for more than 30 days, retirees, and surviving spouses and orphans of Soldiers who died while on active duty or after they retired.
Army Emergency Relief provides emergency financial assistance
for food, rent, utilities, emergency travel, essential vehicle repairs,
funeral expenses and medical/
dental expenses in times of valid emergencies within the Army Regulation 930-4.
The 2012 Army Emergency Relief Campaign officially ended at Fort Knox June 1, but contributions are accepted year round. To donate to Army Emergency Relief please contact the Fort Knox section at Bldg. 5101, 12th Armored Division Avenue or (502) 624-5989; or online at www.aerhq.org.
