ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 19 /CSRwire/ - Today Stateside Associates, Inc., an Arlington, Virginia-based state government affairs firm donated $10,000 to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. These funds will help the Society carry out its mission of support to members and families of the Naval Services of the United States.
The contribution was presented to Society President, Admiral Steve Abbot, USN (ret) by Stateside Principals Constance Campanella, Mark Anderson and Michael Behm.
Stateside Associates has maintained a charitable giving program throughout its 24-year history. This contribution to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Fund marks the firm's largest single contribution to an organization to date.
Stateside Associates first became aware of the charitable work of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society when Michael Behm participated in a small fundraising event more than ten years ago. “I have always been especially impressed by the percentage of all funds that go directly to supporting the veterans and their families,” he said of the Society’s operation.
“Our servicemembers and their loved ones deserve the quality of service and care the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society provides,” said Stateside Associates CEO Constance Campanella. “We are a small business and are privileged to serve many large corporate clients. We hope our contribution encourages others to give to the Society.”
A private non-profit and volunteer service organization, funded entirely by charitable contributions, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society provides financial, educational and general assistance to members of the Naval Services and their eligible family members and survivors. The primary functions of the Society's mission are carried out by a network of more than 3,600 dedicated volunteers.
