    Updated On: Apr 03, 2018

    AFGE Local 1273 member Art Oogjen's son Chase has a debilitating illness which requires expensive medical treatment.  The family has set up a GoFundMe page to assist with expenses. UPDATE: We've learned that Chase's condition has become serious and he will need very expensive medical care (3/15/18).  Please consider donating!  If you've already donated, please consider giving again.  

    There are many ways to donate:

    • a check payable to Chase Medical Fund can be mailed to us at AFGE Local 1273 PO Box 132, Boise, ID 83701, or dropped by our office at 500 W Fort Street, Building T111, Boise, ID 83702 (at the Boise VA Medical Center Campus), we'll drop it by the Idaho Central Credit Union for you.
    • If you want to donate cash (checks and money orders are more secure) you can also donate cash in person at our medical center office or any Idaho Central Credit Union branch. Let them know it is for the Chase Medical Fund, if the teller has questions please have them contact our office at (208) 422-1033 so we can make sure it gets to the correct account.
    • There's a Facebook fundraiser (accepts credit cards, but they take a percentage)
    • There's a GoFundMe page (accepts credit cards, but they take a percentage)
    • or call our office at (208) 422-1033.

    Thank you again for your generous support of Chase and his family, and please remember to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
