Since 1942 Army Emergency Relief has been an integral part of Army life, providing no-interest loans and grants to Soldiers and their Families for many different categories of financial assistance, including emergency needs, children and spouse scholarships, and grants to widows and Wounded Warriors.
This year’s campaign theme, “Supporting Soldiers and their Families; Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow” recognizes the vital role Army Emergency Relief plays in enabling Soldiers to better focus on accomplishing their mission. Since its founding, Army Emergency Relief has consistently demonstrated extraordinary care, compassion and consideration in meeting Soldiers’ financial needs and has earned the enduring trust of the U.S. Army as an institution.
Each year the Army Emergency Relief Campaign provides a venue for leaders at all levels to create a greater awareness of available benefits and affords Soldiers the opportunity to make a contribution to their fellow Soldiers. Every donation made today helps provide funds for Soldiers and their Families tomorrow and ensures that we can continue enhancing our ability to remain “Army Strong.”
