Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Active Duty Fund Drive kicks off in the Hampton Roads Region, headed by Marine Forces Command in 2022
1 Mar 2022

The 2022 Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) Active Duty Fund Drive for Hampton Roads regional commands begins March 1st and continues into April as Sailors and Marines in the area work to raise awareness and money to support the services provided by the Society.

Marine Forces Command, based at Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads (NSAHR) next to U.S. Fleet Forces Command, is the lead command for coordinating this year’s fund drive efforts for twelve area commands in the Hampton Roads region that is home to more than 75,000 service members across 373 commands.

“The theme of the Active Duty Fund Drive is ‘By our own, for our own.’ It is important for Marines and Sailors to recognize the impact that their donation can have on the lives of fellow service members. Our donations go directly to support those in need within our commands,” said Lt. Gen. Michael Langley, Commander, Marine Forces Command, and this year’s fund drive chairman.

The goal of the Active Duty Fund Drive is to raise awareness of the programs and services available to active duty Sailors and Marines, and to raise funds to support the programs and services offered by the NMCRS.  

Since 1903, the Society has provided financial assistance and education to United States Navy and Marine Corps members, their eligible family members, widows, and survivors. A key effort in funding the society has been the Active Duty Fund Drive (ADFD), an event annually held at Navy and Marine Corps installations around the world.

In 2021, NMCRS provided more than $5.6 million in financial assistance to over six thousand service members and families belonging to commands in the Hampton Roads region.

“The Navy Marine Corps Relief Society does great work on behalf of our Sailors and Marines, directly contributing to troop welfare, warfighting readiness, and mission accomplishment.  We need all commands to support their fund drive representatives to increase awareness of the programs offered, and each of us needs to consider contributing to the fund drive to continue helping our own Marines and Sailors in times of need,” said Langley.

Service members that belong to a command in the Hampton Roads region can donate easily online or through pay allotment.
