A thank you note from Base

I received a beautiful Christmas card in the mail yesterday addressed to Marine Corps Kids. It is from Rachel, a Family Readiness Officer at Twentynine Palms, CA.

Rachel wrote:

Thank you for your thoughtful giving to the the US Marine Corps... My unit, VMU-1, was returning from deployment in Iraq... the temperature dropped & we got several inches of snow here in the dessert!! ... The hats were a surprise and welcomed gift as the families tried to stay warm while waiting for their Marines.

We are so grateful for the unique way in which you show your support to our Marines. Truly, the work of your hands has warmed the hearts of many.

To all of our charitable crafters who send gifts throughout the year, your hand-work is received, used, and very much appreciated. I hope it puts a smile on your face to know that your donations have reached so many families!

In the new year, Marine Corps Kids will continue sending gifts for the newborn babies and the children of our deployed troops. Your gift, no matter how big or small, goes a long way. I hope you will all continue to support our military families in whatever way you can.

I wish each and every one of you a very happy new year!

Thank you all for your continued support!
