NIAGARA FALLS AIR RESERVE STATION, N.Y. -- Members of the Friends of Family Support Association received a donation during the June Unit Training Assembly here, June 5, 2015.
The Red Brick Bench Press Championships donated proceeds from its annual weight lifting competition to local military organizations, including the FFSA. The annual event, which started in 2004, raises money for Armed Forces members and their families and is named after the inaugural location held at the Lewiston, N.Y. Red Brick Schoolhouse.
This year, the Red Brick Bench Press Championships was held on base and raised over $11,000 for troops and their families.
FFSA supports the efforts, programs, and mission of the NFARS Airmen and Family Readiness Center.
