The Riverside National Cemetery Support Committee (RNCSC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide upkeep and support to the Riverside National Cemetery while providing activities for veterans, their families and the community. Memorials built at Riverside National Cemetery are built and maintained with private funds. The RNCSC has provided funds for the cemetery’s Medal of Honor Memorial, POW/MIA Statue and Plaza, and the Soldiers Memorial. They have also provided funding to repair and maintain the Fountain and provide golf carts to transport handicapped visitors. The RNCSC has raised millions of dollars to honor those who have served our country, and their work continues. The RNCSC hosts numerous events each year, such as the Concert for Heroes event and Memorial and Veterans’ Day ceremonies. They also provide services for the families of veterans, such as the Remembrance of Love Project, and providing the Indigent Unclaimed Veterans Ceremony. The RNCSC needs help to gather funds for their current project, a Native American Veteran Memorial. They are working hard to achieve their goal of $3.5 million for construction, plus enough for an endowment fund for maintenance. This is in addition to the $300,000 the RNCSC needs annually to meet their existing commitments. Corona Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors member Jim Gore of Vulcan Materials is also on the Board of the RNCSC. On behalf of the Committee, Jim invites all to find out more by visiting their website, rncsc.org. Contributions can be sent to: Riverside National Cemetery Support Committee, P.O. Box 7519, Redlands, CA 92375.
