News from Our Partners: Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society – There When You Need Us for Unexpected Expenses and More


 

Relief for dental expenses: Dental work can be a pain – not just in your mouth, but on your wallet. NMCRS can provide no-interest loans, and in certain cases outright grants, to assist with this necessary, and often dreaded event. The Society recently assisted a retiree who had several teeth that needed extensive work: crowns, fillings and an extraction.  While the retiree did have dental insurance, it did not cover 100% of the cost and the copay was over $4,000. The Society was able to provide a loan to pay for the copay portion of the bill. To learn more about how NMCRS can help you, visit https://www.nmcrs.org

Relief for educational expenses: Did you know NMCRS offers educational assistance to spouses and children of retirees? The Society offers educational grants up to $3,000 and interest-free loans up to $4,000 per school year. Applications for 2022-2023 school year open in January.

Operation Allies Refuge: When Operation Allies Refuge evacuated hundreds of families from Afghanistan, many organizations answered the call to help.  Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society was one of those organizations that supported the efforts surrounding this operation. Several Society offices including, NMCRS Rota, NMCRS Sigonella, and NMCRS Naples assisted by training volunteers, and coordinating their support, along with our Thrift Shop volunteers collecting, sorting, and distributing thousands of donated items.  “The spirit, dedication, and compassion found in our staff members, and our many Society volunteers, is truly incredible,” remarked NMCRS CEO and President, LtGen Jack W. Klimp, USMC (Ret.) “So many people from our team worked tirelessly to ensure families had necessities such as clothing, blankets, diapers, towels and even toys for the children who were evacuated. I’m very proud of how we were able to come together to make things a little bit easier for those who were impacted.”

NMCRS can “be there” for moments like this, because of donors like you. Your generous giving allows us to give back in ways and experiences that are truly priceless.
