Over the past two months, thanks to the generosity of our charitable donors, we have sent gifts of hats, blankets, booties, sweaters and toys to the families of our troops. The response to our initial announcements has been heartwarming.

Many thanks to all of you who have expressed interest in contributing to this worthy cause, and to all of you who have so generously donated your time and your beautiful craft works. Your donations are so appreciated.

We are accepting donations of hand-crafted baby items - hats, blankets, booties, bibs, toys and clothing. All forms of craft work are accepted and appreciated! Whether you crochet, knit, sew or quilt, your beautiful crafts will be sent to the families of our serving Marines. Feel free to use the patterns of your choice. We only ask that all items be baby-appropriate in color and fiber. Please use soft yarns in acrylic and/or cotton. We discourage the use of wool or wool blends which could create allergy issues for some children.

Your donations are a significant gesture of support those who keep the home fires burning!

Donations can be sent to:

Marine Corps Kids
1570 LaCosta Drive West
Pembroke Pines, FL 33027

Thank you all for your continued support and for helping to spread the word about this worthy cause.
