COLUMBUS AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. – A monthly meeting between spouses of military members has shifted into a non-profit organization whose mission is to foster a high morale amongst its members.

The organization promotes the ideals of the United States Air Force through welfare, charitable, socials, and recreational activities.

“There is much more to this than just socializing, which is what most people perceive us doing,” said Brandy Womble, Columbus Spouses Club president. “Our biggest contribution is the base thrift shop, where 100 percent of the proceeds go directly back to the community.”

By running the thrift shop, the spouses club was also able to provide four $2,000 scholarships to youths in the community and other base spouses.

“Running the shop is tough work and we are doing everything we can to keep it going,” said Womble. “There is essentially a handful of us that run it and we could always use extra help. Plus Airmen can get in some volunteer hours.”

The spouse’s club has been utilizing the thrift shop to help donate to twelve other agencies, to include, United Way Adopt a Family, the Air Force Ball, and the Columbus local food pantry.

“We are in need of volunteers both at the thrift shop and the spouses club,” said Womble. “I know we are doing great things and would love to continue supporting the community, but help is crucial to keep the thrift shop going.”

To volunteer or to join the Columbus Spouses Club, please contact Brandy Womble at or by the organizations Facebook group, Columbus Spouses Club.
