Donate Care Packages for the Troops These Holidays

military-family

Since this is the season for giving, who better to give a gift to than those who server our country; therefore, we are holding a Care Package Drive in support of local Marines who are currently serving in Afghanistan. The LCpl Cody Childers Memorial Fund is a non-profit foundation started by Wendy Childers in the name of her son, whom she lost while serving in Afghanistan. I encourage you to visit the website: www.wecaremarines.com for additional information.

So, PLEASE join the ODUBG in support of those who give so much for our country and our way of life. It is the simple things that make a difference in the quality of life of those who are away from home and keep watch over the rest of us!

We are collecting the following items to be shipped by the LCpl Cody Childers Memorial Fund to Marines in Afghanistan by New Years. So PLEASE bring your donations in by December 16th !!

Thank You and Happy Holidays!
