Our New Website

As promised, we have a new website for Marine Corps Kids!

Starting this year we are changing our process so that crafters will send their gifts directly to volunteers who will distribute your donations to the families.  This will allow your gifts to reach the families sooner and save on double shipping charges.

Marine Corps Kids has grown so much since we started operations in 2007.  While I am delighted in this growth, the demands of processing all of the donations has become more than I am able to handle.  By switching to this new direct-ship process, we will keep Marine Corps Kids alive and allow it to grow in coming years. 

On the new website you will be able to see where gifts are needed.  I will update the site regularly as new needs are identified.

The webpage is still fairly rudimentary, and is likely to undergo several changes before it is finalized.  In the meantime it is a simple way for me to communicate with all of you regarding current needs.

In addition to the new website, we are maintaining our presence on Facebook.  I invite you all to "like" our page, and to post photos of your gifts and/or interact with other MCK crafters there.

Thank you all for being part of our Marine Corps Kids family and for your continued generosity.
