The Armed Forces Service Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization
located at the MSP Airport, since November 22, 1970. The Center
serves as an oasis for "active duty" military personnel and
dependents. As well as, Reservists, National Guard, DoD and PHS (on
any orders), as they travel through the Minneapolis/St. Paul
The Armed Forces Service Center is not a "USO." Our one-of a-kind
facility is unique to Minnesota. Maggie Purdum, founded the AFSC as
a tribute to all those who serve -- after her son died in Vietnam.
The center is open 24/7, three hundred and sixty-five days a year,
to make sure our doors are never closed to a serviceperson in need
of food, shelter or assistance. Our services have been in high
demand of late. The number of individuals passing thru our door has
increased dramatically following the events of 9/11 and pursuant to
the “War on Terrorism.” To date, we have the privilege of serving
over 760,000 "active duty" military personnel, and 227 military
charter flights (over 65,000 combat troops).
We rely on funds received from various veterans organizations, their
auxiliaries, as well as, private organization and individuals. All
monetary donations received go into a general operating fund to help
keep our facility open for active duty military.
Federal tax ID number 41-0966145.
