Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Responding to Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana

Arlington, VA, Tuesday, August 29, 2017 – The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is providing assistance to active duty and retired Marines and Sailors who are experiencing financial difficulties in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Every day of the week, around the globe, the Society provides interest-free loans and grants for basic living expenses, emergency travel expenses, and other family emergencies for military members and their families facing financial crisis or need.  

Prior to Hurricane Harvey’s arrival, NMCRS volunteers provided financial assistance to service members and their families ordered to evacuate and, in the aftermath, continue to provide assistance to those who have lost homes, cars, and possessions. We are also working closely with the Navy and Marine Corps to provide necessary financial assistance for next of kin to travel to the area to support family members in their recovery efforts, when conditions permit and travel is authorized by FEMA, Red Cross and local Emergency Response Teams. 

“Every member of the NMCRS Team is leaning forward to assist those in need!,” stated Marine Corps Brigadier General (Retired) Pete Collins, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Society. 

For more information on the Society’s programs and services, please visit www.nmcrs.org. To donate to support military families impacted by Hurricane Harvey, please go to https://donate.nmcrs.org/hurricaneharvey.
