Many thanks to those of you who donated towards the luncheon my friends and I recently held at Bethesda.
Wounded Marines, Soldiers, their families and friends, Marine Officers in Training from Quantico, hospital staff and Navy and Marine staff enjoyed a meal of pork barbecue, lunchmeat and sandwich makings, cole slaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, chips, fresh veggie trays, fresh fruit, pies, and juice drinks.
We were able to have gift bags for each family, and we filled the fridge and cabinets in the pantry with Gatorade, soda, bottled juice, chips, Entenmann’s, and individually packaged snacks. Items like games and magazines were left in the Day Rooms for the families to use as they would like to.
All of this was made possible by the generous donations of Entenmann’s, Rice’s Country Store, Operation Thank You, co-workers, and friends from across the country.
Many thanks to all of you!
