Assistance

2018 Assistance Recipients


The Officers’ Spouses’ Club Assistance Committee accepts application requests for funds in the Spring each year.  All requests must be received by the appropriate deadline to insure consideration by the committee.  No post-dated requests will be considered (i.e. funds for an event that has already occurred or for an item already purchased).

Applications will be reviewed by the committee after the deadline; and proposals approved at the following board meeting.  If there are any questions as to whether or not a request is eligible please contact us prior to submitting your application.  Questions can be directed to OSC at cherrypointoscassistance@gmail.com.

Thank you to those that submitted their application for 2018.  An Awards Banquet took place on May 16th to recognize almost 20 different programs who received grants totaling $22,500 in total for 2018.

A majority of the funds raised to fund these grants come from the sale of donated items at The Whistle Stop Thrift Store. Please consider making the Whistle Stop your thrift shop of choice for donations and purchases.
