NEX customers donate to NMCRS

Navy Exchange Service Command

Retired Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi, chief executive officer, Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) presented a ceremonial check on June 24 for $194,984 to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) from money donated by NEX customers.

“Our customers look forward to this time of year where they can purchase the benefit ticket to support Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society,” Bianchi said. “Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society offers a great benefit to our Sailors, Marines and their families. We are proud to be able to present this check to Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society on behalf of our customers.”

NEXCOM has been offering customers the ability to purchase a $5 card to benefit the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society since 2010. The card entitled customers to specific discounts for a onetime purchase in April.

“The generous support from the worldwide NEXCOM organization has resulted in more than $1.4 million in contributions since 2011,” retired Brig Gen.

Peter B. Collins, U.S. Marine Corps, vice president and chief administrative officer, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, said. “This support has made it possible for society volunteers to provide need-based financial assistance for many active duty and retired Sailors, Marines and their families around the globe. The annual NEXCOM coupon sale to benefit Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is immensely important.

Thank you to all NEXCOM employees and customers — you continue to make an important difference for those who serve.”
