National Remember Our Troops Campaign - Springfield Division

NROTC is always looking for volunteers to oversee our "Card-Signing Donation Tables." This can be a one-time event or recurring as often as the volunteer would like since the opportunities are endless. Set-ups are usually done at local grocery stores, retailers, gas stations, festivals, trade shows, etc. All money raised stays, as much as possible, in the area in which it was raised to provide emergency financial assistance to disabled and disadvantaged veterans and military service members and their families.
