Ramstein Bazaar Gives Back
We understand that dollar amounts don’t truly explain the impact that the Bazaar funds have on our military community. So every year we like to highlight a few beneficiaries and their stories. If you or your organization have received funds from the Ramstein Officers’ Spouses Club and would like to share your own story with us, please contact our Communications Director at email@example.com.
One of the most EXCITING contributions that the Ramstein Bazaar funds are able to offer the Kaiserslautern Military Community is $100,000 in scholarships for 2019! Together with the Ramstein Enlisted Spouses Association (RESA) and the Kaiserslautern-Landstuhl Spouses Association (KLSA), a total of $143,750 for 96 scholarships were awarded to local students and spouses to further their educational goals. Recipients included 66 graduating high school students, 18 university students, and 12 spouses. The scholarships ranged in value from $250 to $4,000.
With the help and support of the Ramstein Officers’ Spouses Club, 28 high school students from Ramstein had the opportunity to have the "Best week of their life!" at a Young Life camp in Scotland.
Military teenage dependents from Club Beyond groups on installations in Germany, Italy, and England joined together for a week of fun activities, challenging and encouraging messages, family style meals, and team building all in the breathtaking scenery of the Scottish Highlands at Cairn Brae in Crieff, Scotland.
