Volunteer Opportunity Through the US Navy!

The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is asking for volunteers who desire to make a difference not only for a society, but the world. They are providing great volunteer opportunities for any individuals at SDSU, so take advantage and make a difference. The descriptions for both opportunities are below.

Recruitment

See what a difference you can make. Come join us. We are pleased to report that since April of this year and the occasion of our last awards ceremony, 121 volunteers have stepped forward to give us a total of 21,584 volunteer service hours. Our volunteer knitters and quilters have produced 164 blankets for our “Budget for Babies service,” to be given out to our clients with newborns. And we have also taught 10 Budget for Babies classes. Our office has had 35 caseworkers and Client Services Assistants assist with 1,010 cases which have resulted in $413,372 in assistance to service personnel, from April through August. And we are proud to announce that out Thrift Shop has produced $25,022.55 in sales over the same period. This money goes back into the organization, which means we can do more to help you.

Thanks for your continued support!

We Need Volunteer Financial Caseworkers

Life as a sailor is a commitment that can sometimes be stressful because of the demands of work and family. You can help lessen that load by becoming a Volunteer Financial Caseworker for the Navy-Marine Corp Relief Society (NMCRS). You can be a great asset to sailors and their families by assisting and acquainting them with the many services we offer. Caseworkers act as a guiding light that helps sailors find their way when times get rough. As a Caseworker, you will assist sailors with putting together a financial spending plan that works best for them. This involves setting up a long term savings plan and determining in what other areas NMCRS might be able to assist.

NMCRS is a non-profit, charitable organization that supports active duty and retired Navy and Marine personnel and their families. In 2011, we provided more than 48 Million of assistance to over 96,000 sailors. The San Diego office of NMCRS has given out a total of $413,372 in assistance from the beginning of April 2012 through the middle of August 2012.

Come join us and make a difference in a sailor’s life. We have opportunities Monday through Friday, 8am till 4pm. Sara Griffin (sara.griffin@nmcrs.org) and Terri Seat (terri.seat@nmcrs.org) are standing by; ready to help you get started. The NMCRS office is located in Bldg. 270, 3115 Dolphin Alley, on the Naval Base San Diego. You can telephone us at 619-238-1060. New volunteers are always welcome. And thanks!
