Fifty-eight 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.
Membership in BCSC is open to all DOD ID holders 18 and up. Membership benefits include access to monthly social functions, 20 percent off non-consignment items at both BCSC Thrift Shops, eligibility for BCSC Scholarships, and participation in Sub-Clubs based on special interests.
The new membership year for 2020-2021 opened June 1. The membership form can be found online at www.bavariacsc.com/ and dues may be paid online as well.
