Gifts from Lauria in West Virginia

Lauria from West Virginia sent in a box of hats, sweaters, vests and booties for newborns and preemies.

Thank you so much Lauria! Your work is gorgeous, and it's always helpful to have things on hand to send to the very tiniest of Marine Corps Babies. Your gifts will be very warmly received by the families!

A blanket from Ellen

Ellen from Worcester, MA read about Marine Corps Kids in a magazine and decided to contribute. She sent a lovely and cheery yellow blanket for the babies.

I know that one of our new moms will be just thrilled with this gorgeous blanket!!

Thank you so much, Ellen, for supporting Marine Corps Kids with this beautiful gift!

Thank you, Webster Warmth!

As I said in my recent post, on Thursday I received six boxes of donations. Four of them were from a group called "Webster Warmth". They wrote:
Hello, Marine Corps Kids!

We are a group of students, faculty, and staff (and our friends and family) from Webster University who like to craft for a cause. This year we picked Marine Corps Kids.

I'm sending you four boxes containing: 80 hats, 22 blankets and quilts, 1 bib, 1 sweater, 1 dress, 1 pair of socks and 5 scarves.

Thank you for this wonderful project!

I am blown away by all the love and talent that was packed into those 4 boxes. There are absolutely beautifully made items for the babies.

Many thanks to everyone from Webster University who participated in this effort! Your work is beautiful, and I will be packing up all these lovely things to send to the new babies soon.

Wishing you all a very happy new year!
