Christmas Stockings for Wounded and Recovering Warriors
MarineParents Volunteers Hand Out Stockings, December 2016
This December, MarineParents.com corporate staff packed santa hats and handmade camo stockings full of goodies to give to wounded and recovering warriors at both the Naval Medical Center San Diego (Balboa), and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (Bethesda). The woodland camo stockings were handmade by wonderful volunteers led by Gail Bickerton, a Marine wife, Marissa Grgurich, a Marine mother, and Marie Kosewicz, a Marine wife and mother. The stocking stuffers included candy, snacks, i-tunes gift cards, Schick Hydro 5 razors, and more purchased by MarineParents.com. Thank you to all that support MarineParents, for making this Christmas gift possible for the warriors we serve each week at Bethesda and Balboa.
In addition to the stockings, two of our awesome volunteers, Mary Ann Schilling and Peggy Densford organized and provided a few extra items for the recovering Marines without family members visiting. Some of those items include, gloves, t-shirts, EGA shop gift certificates, and other snacks.
