St. Augustine’s Anglican Church is hosting its annual drive to collect supplies for the Marine Corps Family Support Community, an organization of parents, families, spouses, veterans and friends who support our military (all branches), and who provide a touch of home to our deployed military with our care packages twice a month.
We will bring bags on Sunday, October 7th to collect donation from your community. If you could, take 5-10 bags and give to family, friends, neighbors or co-workers to help. Please return donations the following Sunday, October 14th. We will deliver donations to the Marine Corps Family Support Community following church. You are welcome to join us to deliver and sort donations. Their donations have dwindled over the summer and they are in great need.
We are looking for the following donations:

You can also write letters and have children draw pictures to be included in the care packages.
If you know of someone that is deployed (any branch of the military) and would like them to receive a care package twice a month, go to the Marine Family Support Community website: www.marinecorpsfamilysupportcommunity.org/contact-us to send their address.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
