To access the Lending Closet a copy of orders arriving or departing Fort Lee and military ID are required.
The ACS RRP is the best place to receive relocation assistance and information, as it is especially designed to make your transition into our community an easier and more pleasant experience for all newly-arriving and departing Service members, DoD Civilians and their Families.
Our Lending Closet provides basic household items for military Families PCSing awaiting the arrival of their household goods. Items for loan includes: irons, ironing boards, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, toaster ovens, coffee pots, strollers, card tables and chairs, air mattresses and microwaves. Linens are NOT provided.
Contact your local ACS as soon as you receive orders to request an information booklet on your new duty station. Also, contact your new duty station and request a welcome packet be sent to you, so that you can become familiar with new surroundings and get an idea of what to expect.
Also, contact the transportation office for important information. Homeowners should begin preparations to sell or rent. On-post residents should contact your housing office, which should also have computerized information on housing both on-post and off-post for your new duty station.
Make an inventory of possessions and valuables. Take care of necessary medical and dental appointments. Notify schools and arrange to pick up your children's records. Have pets checked by vet and vaccinations/inoculations updated. Keep a copy of records.
Organize personal records such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, divorce decrees, insurance papers, orders, etc. DO NOT pack these items in your unaccompanied baggage or your household shipment. HAND CARRY THESE ITEMS.
