We need your ribbon
We always appreciate all of the craft and monetary donations that we receive. It's because of the generosity of our donors that we are able to reach so many military families with our gifts.
People sometimes ask me if there are other ways that they can donate. One "supply" that I can always use is fabric ribbon.
When I pack the gifts for the new babies, I try to create bundles that include gifts from several donors. Each bundle is unique depending on what our donors have sent in. One might include a blanket, sweater, hats and booties. Another might have a blanket, toy, bib and hat. The gifts are than folded up into a bundle and wrapped with ribbon like you see in the photo.
If you have some fabric baby motif (pink/blue) ribbon that you do not need (or if you see a bargain at your local craft store and would like to help a good cause) please send the ribbon to Marine Corps Kids. We'll put it to good use for a worthy cause!
As always, craft and ribbon donations can be sent to:
Marine Corps Kids
4524 E Beardsley Drive
Bloomington, IN 47401
Monetary gifts can be made online at the Marine Corp Family Foundation Site or mailed to:
Marine Corps Family Foundation
4000 Lancaster Drive NE Suite 57
Salem, OR 97309
(please make your check out to Marine Corps Family Foundation, and note in the memo that the donation is earmarked for Marine Corps Kids).
