Annual Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Fund Drive begins

Date Posted: 2003-03-28

The 2003 Active Duty Fund Drive in support of the Navy- Marine Corps Relief Society will kick off March 27 at the Butler Officer's Club. The local campaign will be conducted through May 10.

The Navy- Marine Corps Relief Society provides assistance to Marines, Sailors and their families in a time of need. Last year in the Okinawa region alone, 255 loans totaling $228,343 were disbursed, as well as 561 grants totaling $106,830. The majority of these loans and grants provided financial relief during emergencies.

In addition to financial assistance, the Navy- Marine Corps Relief Society provides budget counseling, post- secondary education scholarships and loans for spouses and dependent children of active duty service members and dependent children of retired Marines and Sailors. The Society also dispenses complimentary layettes or junior sea bags to new parents as well as helps clients identify a variety of other resources.

Donations are accepted in the form of payroll deductions (allotments), checks or cash. Service members are encouraged to contribute by allotment since the donation can be spread over a 12- month period, thereby minimizing the financial impact on a member's budget. For those unable to make a monetary donation, the Society would be pleased to have their assistance as a Society Volunteer. See your command Key person for details.

For more information about the fund drive contact 2ndLt. Katherine O. Godwin by calling 645-9458. Command/Activity Fund Drive Chairpersons may also contact Ms. Monica Brady with the Navy- Marine Corps Relief Society at 645-7808.
