Philanthropy & Charitable Giving
The Barksdale OSC is a philanthropic, non-profit organization. We pride ourselves on giving back to our the Shreveport/Bossier City community, as well as supporting our Airmen, Spouses, and military Dependents whenever we can.
Last year, because of our hard work, the amazing community support we received, Charity of the Month & Auction proceeds we were able to contribute over $20,000 to charities which included: Santa's in Blue, Airman's Attic, Airmen Against Drunk Driving, Barksdale OSC Scholarship Fund, and many, many more! Included in these funds were our scholarship disbursements - totaling over $12,000!
If you are a representative of a charitable organization on or off base in need of funds please contact our Charitable Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 45 days prior to the date the funds are needed. You can download the Charitable Request form HERE.
The American Red Cross in Northern Louisiana has a need for volunteers in a variety of areas. One of our biggest needs is in disaster response and preparedness for our area. These volunteers are on call occasionally and respond to disasters, such as house fires or severe storm damage, in order to help assist the families involved. Another volunteer need is in answering phones at the front desk.
