Thank You For Your Interest In Supporting Our Troops and Sending Get Well Wishes To Our Hospitalized Veterans
These Postcards Really Show Them We Care!
NROTC offers a several ways for people to gather “Signed Morale Builder Postcards”.
Your volunteer involvement can be as simple as having a pack of these cards wrapped with a rubber band in your pocket or purse. As you go about your day-to-day activities simply ask people you meet to sign a card with their personal hand-written notes of thanks, support and encouragement… that go to our troops and hospitalized veterans.
Workplace Volunteering Produces Fantastic Results! Employers and/or employees can setup and host “Workplace Volunteer Card Signing Stations”. These stations are great anywhere there are employees… OR CUSTOMERS!
(We supply you with everything you need)
Setting-up and hosting a Card Signing Table at your business is simple and easy.
More on Workplace Volunteering will follow as you scroll down. For now, below here is more on INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERING:
We want to send you 50 of NROTC’s “Morale Builder” Postcards and we want you to get them signed with warm personal notes of support. When you return these cards back to NROTC, we forward them to our troops and hospitalized veterans.
You will be receiving 25 “Thank You For Your Service Cards” AND 25 “Get Well Soon” cards.
Getting These Cards Signed Is Simple and Easy! Just carry them with you everywhere you go. Whenever the opportunity comes up, ask your friends, relatives, co-workers and/or anyone you meet to sign one of these… or one of each.

YOUR POSTCARDS DONATION HELPS TO SUPPORT…
NROTC’s EMERGENCY FINANCIAL AID & ASSISTANCE PROGRAM is our attempt to help those veterans who have honorably served, and through no fault of their own, have fallen upon hard times. Government money is limited and services are often at capacity. Many veterans fall through the cracks. Often, NROTC is able to help a veteran in need, WITH AN EMERGENCY CHECK… to make a delinquent rent or mortgage payment, a utility payment or a car loan payment to get someone back and forth to work etc.
Unlike most if not all government agencies, NROTC is often able to make these payments quickly without red-tape… after a simple application and investigative process.
THIS IS REAL HELP WHEN THE NEED IS CRITICAL!
While people are signing their cards for you, NROTC would appreciate if you ask them for a donation of any amount to support our mission. This is NOT required! You can enclose any donations you receive when you are mailing your signed cards back to NROTC. Asking for donations is left entirely up to you but we hope you will!
Note: At this time, volunteers can only solicit donations in the following states:
CO, DE, FL, IA, ID, IN, MD, MO, MT, NE, NJ, NV, OK, SD, TX, VT, and WY
If you do NOT live in one of the states above, you can still gather signed cards for our troops and veterans. You just cannot ask for donations. We are expecting to add many new states to this list very shortly.

WHY IS FUNDRAISING IMPORTANT?
Donations are the life’s blood of many charities including NROTC. According to The National Council of Nonprofits, “Most charitable nonprofits rely upon the generosity of donors for some or all of their funding. Consequently, fundraising is an activity of major importance to the nonprofit sector.”
According to The Institute for Human Services, “All nonprofits rely on volunteers to accomplish the work they do.
According to The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), about 154,000 Veterans are homeless on a typical night in America. Over the course of a year, approximately twice that many experience homelessness.
According to The National Coalition For Homeless Veterans, the most effective programs for homeless and at-risk veterans are nonprofit groups.
Government money, while important, is limited, and available services are often at capacity. It is critical, therefore, that nonprofit groups reach out to help provide the support, resources and opportunities that most Americans take for granted.
NROTC IS COLLABORATING WITH THE VA and other government agencies, to reach out and help, to the best of our ability, ANY VETERAN, MILITARY OR VETERAN FAMILY IN NEED!
NROTC believes that no veteran or military family, especially a military family with young children involved, should ever find themselves living on the streets due to lack of transportation, meaningful employment or government assistance.
