AAF Pensacola has officially announced Escambia Search and Rescue as their selection for the 2013-2014 public service campaign. Annually, AAF Pensacola selects a non-profit organization for a public service advertising campaign directed to that organization’s specific needs. During the month of August, AAF Pensacola received more than 90 applications. The AAF Pensacola Board of Directors extensively reviewed the applications and selected Escambia Search and Rescue (ESAR) to receive this year’s campaign.
Over the next few months, the AAF Pensacola Public Service committee will work with the organization’s leaders to determine which advertising and marketing services are needed and will begin the development of a plan that will raise awareness for ESAR within our community. Visit AAF Pensacola’s Facebook page or aafpensacola.com for updates.
