Shout out for all my Blog, Twitter, Google! and Facebook friends and family.
I know my followers are used to reading all kinds of posts on my blog ranging from zombies to ghost hunting, but today I'm putting out the call to help the young men and women who are in Marine Boot Camp. I'm sure you've read my post on Biff Bam Pop about my thoughts on the movie Full Metal Jacket and my oldest grandson joining the Marines. My daughter and her family along with hubby and I are planning of being there for Jimmy on the day he graduates, but...
Not every Marine has family coming to their special graduation day, either due to illness, death or maybe financial reasons. Since these brave souls are willing to put their lives on the line for us, the least we can do is make sure that everyone of our soldiers has a goodie bag on graduation day. Check the information below and do this for them, please and thank you. Check information below:
SAM Bags are for Stand Alone Marines – new Marines that do not have family members come for family day or graduation. Friends and family members collect donations to pack goodie bags for the new Marines as a way to thank them for their sacrifice and congratulate them on their accomplishment
We are looking for items to put in bags for the SAMs. We will be making 25 bags. The following is a list of items you can donate or if you have something specific please feel free and send it! Kelly at Gilligan's also gave me a few things that they already have and we DO NOT need to send. I will list those as well. All items must be received by March 13, 2014 by 4:00. If you have any questions please just ask. Thank you all for your support!
Please mail all donations to:
2601 Boundary Street
Beaufort, SC 29906
Please make sure you mark the box with the company name and graduation date
KILO and NOVEMBER COMPANY 3/14/14.
Gift Cards (McDonalds, Burger King, etc.)
Gatorade or Bottled Water (this is an item someone could bring to the restaurant)
Things NOT to send:
