Arlington, VA, Wednesday, July 29, 2015 – The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) will expand services available to active duty Sailors and Marines at their China Lake, California office to include Quick Assist Loans (QALs). The NMCRS China Lake will kick off their QAL Service on Wednesday, August 5, 2015 at 9:30 a.m.

QALs are short-term, interest-free loans for up to $500 and are available to active duty Navy and Marine Corps service members facing an emergency or other urgent financial situation. 

“The need for QALs and other Society services remains strong aboard NAWS China Lake.  We want to ensure we’re providing Sailors and Marines stationed here with the services and programs they need to take care of their families and fulfill their military duties. ” says Erin Gaian, Director, NMCRS Camp Pendleton, who oversees the NMCRS China Lake office.
