Change is in the air.
Yep. I can feel it.
The air is getting cooler, the leaves are starting to fall, and the days are getting shorter. Autumn is definitely approaching! My favorite time of the year! I love the change of the seasons and all the fall colors!
There are so many holidays - Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years - times when families build memories together. For families that have a deployed parent those holidays can be hard - someone important is missing from the celebration.
That's why I ask that as you plan for all the great upcoming events with your loved ones, you remember our Military Families. I'd love to be able to send special packages for the babies for Halloween and Thanksgiving! For Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years we will be sending items for the entire family. Hand-crafted gifts for babies, older children and parents/care-takers will be collected and distributed on bases.
All of our Marine Corps Kids donors have already shown what big hearts and what amazing talent you have. Please reach into your hearts and send what you can for Marine Corps Kids during the coming months.
