Civil Air Patrol seeking sponsor

The Peachtree City Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol is in need of a sponsor.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has donated one of its trailers to the Squadron for use as a mission base.  Peachtree City’s Atlanta Regional Airport (Falcon Field) has provided the land necessary to set up the trailer.  The Squadron lacks only one item:  a long-term concrete trailer foundation.  The cost for laying the foundation is estimated from $4,000 to $5,000.  Because the Civil Air Patrol is a nonprofit organization, any sponsorship or donations will qualify for a 501(c)(3) tax exemption.  Read More»
