AAR – “Holiday Cheer 2016”

giftBeing far from home in a hospital over the Holidays is no fun.

We were grateful to once again have the opportunity to bring some “Holiday Cheer” to recovering Marines at the hospital.

 

On December 7, 2016 Marine Moms-Bethesda delivered gifts and cards to the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Battalion-East Detachment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. This was our 10th year bringing cheer to patients!

It’s hard to believe this will be our 9th “Holiday Cheer event”!

Once again we’ll be bringing Holiday Cheer to patients and families so far from home at Walter Reed/Bethesda over the holidays!

This year’s “Holiday Cheer will be a little different and consist of:

  1. A “Holiday Cheer” luncheon on the inpatient surgical ward at Walter Reed, serving all service branches.
  2. “Elfie Gifts” for a Marine family with children, and two single Marines.
  3. “Holiday Cheer” Cards Campaign.

We’re pretty excited, and also honored to have this opportunity to serve those who’ve served us and who are so far away from home during the holidays.

The final postmark deadline for “Holiday Cheer” is Monday, November 16, 2015.
