News Release
SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Community groups can raise funds for their worthy causes while spreading some holiday cheer as the Schofield and Hickam exchanges actively solicit partners for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s annual community gift wrap program.

“To make the holidays a little easier, we partner with local groups to ensure gifts purchased at the Exchange are wrapped up before they even leave the store,” said General Manager Robert Rice.

“Beyond offering a one-stop solution for busy military shoppers, this effort also helps raise money for local military support initiatives,” he said.
During peak holiday seasons, the Hawaii Exchange sets up tables and provides supplies that community volunteer groups can use to wrap gifts in exchange for donations.

Points of Contact
Interested organizations can contact Denelle Gonzalez, fundraising coordinator, at 656-0102, or Glen Schneider, operations manager, at 423-1304, for information on scheduling a time to participate.

Army and Air Force Exchange
News Release
DALLAS — Holiday shoppers can budget easily this year when they shop at Army & Air Force Exchange Service, which, for a limited time, is offering fee-free layaway on computers, laptops, tablets and notebooks – items that are not normally eligible for layaway.

From now until Dec. 14, the Exchange will waive its standard $3 service fee for all layaway purchases that are paid in full within 30 days and picked up on time.

Layaway will not be offered for computers, laptops, tablets and notebooks purchased Nov. 27-28.

“Electronic devices are some of the most in-demand holiday gift items the Exchange carries,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, Exchange senior enlisted adviser. “That’s why we are offering to help shoppers fulfill their loved ones’ holiday wishes without breaking the bank – a personal gift from us to Soldiers, Airmen and their families.”

A deposit of 15 percent is required to hold items on layaway at the Exchange. Shoppers can visit customer service for complete program details and eligibility information.
