We Couldn’t Do It Without You

Military life can be complex and present unexpected challenges. As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated, life can sometimes be anything but predictable.

The Trenton MFRC is a registered charity that relies on community support to promote and facilitate programming and services to enrich, strengthen and enhance the quality of life for our military families. Donate Now.

How you Can Make a Difference

Donations support the access and availability of programs and services that fall outside regular funding. In order to continuously respond to the needs of families, we rely on the support of our community partners. Your donation will support military members and their families in Quinte West and the surrounding region.
