FAIRCHILD AFB - The Airman and Family Readiness Center at Fairchild Air Force Base received a Christmas present that'll make the season a little brighter for family members of deployed military spouses.

TriWest HealthCare Alliance donated $3,000 to the organization that helps unite spouses and children to their loved ones fighting in war overseas.  Organizers said they plan to use the money for a variety of events, from a spousal day spa day, to events especially for kids.

The money may also be used to help families with critical needs that require immediate financial assistance, such as car accidents or illnesses.

TriWest Healthcare Alliance is a company contracted by the government to provide healthcare services to retirees, personnel and their families.
