The Fort Bliss Spouses’ Association is dedicated to supporting our local community by awarding community outreach grants to qualifying organizations and educational scholarships to traditional, continuing education and vocational students. These funds are raised directly from proceeds of the Fort Bliss Thrift Shop and fundraisers such as the Tree & Wreath Auction, Flocking, and the Tour of Homes. We also have a charitable outreach program whereby we highlight an eligible organization at our monthly social and collect items that are an immediate need. Operation Deploy Your Dress is another way we to give back to our military community.
Our community grants program allows us to not only provide resources to eligible Fort Bliss organizations, but also those eligible organizations that serve the entire El Paso community. By supporting these organizations, the FBSA is able to multiply our reach and impact on the greater community.
Our charitable outreach program chooses a local organization to highlight each month of our board year. As an association, FBSA members collect needed items to donate to the organization to help fill their immediate needs.
Our scholarships are awarded to applying members and their local, immediate family members to help provide secondary and vocational education opportunities. In this way, we invest in our members and prepare them for a brighter future.

ODYD provides free evening wear and accessories to U.S. Military I.D. cardholders in order to defray the costs of attending military balls and galas while still maintaining these rich traditions.
