The OSC has proudly been involved with Holiday Cheer for many years and humbly continues to serve the Marines, Sailors, and families of New River.
Festival of Trees
Every year the New River OSC provides a tree for The Onslow Caregivers, Inc. Festival of Trees. This annual festival is held at the American Legion Hall in November just before Thanksgiving. The festival showcases fully decorated trees provided by various organizations in the Jacksonville area.
Proceeds from the event help Onslow Home Health and Hospice fund the many programs they offer.
The intent of our scholarships has always been, and will continue to be, to support our local military families and their pursuit of furthering their educational goals.
NROSC scholarship applications are available in two forms: (1) Graduating High School Senior Scholarship Application (2) Spouse Scholarship Application.
