Bavaria Community and Spouses Club news release
The Bavaria Community and Spouses Club is pleased to announce that during the 2018-2019 board year, BCSC distributed $93,700 in Community Outreach Grants and Scholarships.
We greatly appreciate the community’s support in our fundraising efforts, which are primarily based on the profits from both the Grafenwoehr and Vilseck Thrift Shops as well as the annual Crown Jewel Bazaar.
Thirty-four scholarships were awarded during this club year, which runs from June 1 – May 31. Twenty-six of those scholarships went to continuing education students, while eight were awarded to high school seniors.
Forty-five Community Outreach Grants were awarded to community groups. Those organizations include Soldier Family Readiness Groups, DODEA Programs and Athletic Teams, Private Organizations, and Military Organizations.
BCSC Membership is open to all DOD ID holders 18 and up. Membership benefits include, but are not limited to, monthly social functions, 20 percent off non-consignment items at both Thrift Shops, access to Scholarships, and participation in special interest groups known as Sub-Clubs.
The new year begins June 1. The membership form may be found at our website and dues may be paid online as well.
Scholarship and Community Grant application deadlines for the 2019-2020 year will be announced in late summer of 2019. Volunteers to assist at the Bazaar as well as in both Thrift Shops are always needed! For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
