This Month's Charity

This month, San Diego Roller Derby is honored to have The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society as our charity.  Donations and 50/50 raffle will support this nobel cause. The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is a private non-profit charitable organization. It is sponsored by the Department of the Navy and operates nearly 250 offices ashore and afloat at Navy and Marine Corps bases throughout the world. The Society was incorporated in the District of Columbia and has its headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. It is managed by a Board of Directors whose members are active duty or retired members of the Naval Services, or spouses of active duty or retired members of the Naval Services. Their mission is to provide in partnership with the navy and marine corps, financial, educational, and other assistance to the members of the Naval Services of the United States, eligible family members, and other survivors when in need: and to receive and manage funds to administer these programs. I hope others will honor their military heroes by joining us in stepping up during these difficult economic times and aiding those who turn to this great organization when in need.
