The Community Spouses’ Club enhances the lives of military spouses. Activities include monthly luncheons and dinners, the annual Benning Bazaar, the Fort Benning Tour of Homes, auctions and a reception for scholarship recipients. The CSC supports the communities, on post and off, in a variety of ways, including financial aid to organizations, based on need and merit. Revenues from the Fort Benning Thrift Shop are used to support the CSC’s Community Grants and Scholarship Fund.
The Thrift Shop is a consignment shop that offers a variety of gently used items, including jewelry, linens, furniture, clothing, art, lamps, rugs and much more. The shop is open to the public, but only military ID card holders can consign merchandise. The shop is in Building 1713 in the plaza behind the Main Post Mini Mall on Ingersoll Street. It is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and the first Saturday of the month. Donations are accepted. For more information, call 706-687-4830.
The Community Spouses’ Club is open to spouses, widows and widowers of military ID card holders of all ranks, including active duty, Reserve or National Guard components, retirees, international forces, civilian employees of the Department of Defense and their spouses. The club is also open to active-duty Soldiers. Membership runs from August to May. For more information, go to www.fortbenningcsc.org.
