Support Our Troops is the official charitable cause of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). Like hospitals and schools that receive core public funding, members of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families appreciate the generosity of Canadians who chose to assist with the distinctive requirements and individual circumstances that arise due to their military service.

If you are receiving this newsletter, it is because your past support has directly touched the brave women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces community. Canadian Armed Forces’ members and their families serve our nation with a deep sense of pride and duty.

When I am speaking with donors, I enjoy listening to their stories about why it is important for them to support. In this issue, Howard Glowinsky, Director of his family owned business Elite Roofing talks about why his company gives to the National Scholarship Program. Last year, of the 388 applications received, only 45 were awarded scholarships. The program is now accepting applications and with support from Canadians, fewer students will abandon their academic dreams and struggle with stress and the financial burdens on their own.

I am humbled by Canadians’ patriotism and appreciation of the Canadian Armed Forces and the sacrifices they make. Canadians understand their valuable role, whether it is delivering humanitarian aid, responding to natural disasters at home or abroad or participating in international peacekeeping efforts. Our collective support of CAF members is needed to continue to keep us safe and secure.

Each newsletter will share stories about the conditions of military service, the positive impact your donations are
making, what’s coming up, and how you can get involved. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at oakley.nancy@cfmws.com.
