Thank you again Sam's Club

 

We did Sam's Club again on Sat Oct 9, 2010. It was an amazing turnout and we collected more items than we ever have before so we will get to send many more boxes to give our men & women abroad the best Christmas possible. We would like to thank  Sam's Club, the community & our friends who were very generous in making this our best drive ever. Our garage, not much room to walk.

We would like to thank Mike, Terry, & Nelson with the Young Marines & the Young Marines for all of their help passing out fliers and collecting donations. We would also like to thank the CA National Guard, the US Army, the US Air Force, US Marine Corps, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, parents of deployed military and all the of volunteers that came out to help with our donation drive & helped make our day a success. It wouldn't have been possible without you.

We would also like to thank the representatives of Councilwoman Hahn, Assemblyman Ted Lieu, and Senator Jenny Oropeza*. They presented us, Mike & Shirley, with certificates thanking us for our work sending care packages to our deployed military. It was a great honor to receive them.

 

*We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Senator Oropeza, it is a great loss, she did many wonderful things for the community. We pray for her family.

 

 

Thank you Sam's Club

 

For the 4th time on May 2, 2009 we went to Sam's on Sky Park Dr in Torrance and passed out fliers to collect donations for our troops. Thanks to Sam's Club & the people of the South Bay for making it another successful day! And a special thank you to the Marine JROTC students from Carson High School, Air Force JROTC from San Pedro High School, and the LA Port Police Cadets who helped us. With their help we were able to ship over 100 boxes in May '09.

 

 

 

Thank you Sam's Club

 

    For the 3rd time on January 19, 2009 we went to Sam's on Sky Park Dr in Torrance and passed out fliers to collect donations for our troops. Thanks to Sam's Club & the people of the South Bay for making it another successful day! And a special thank you to the ROTC students from  from Carson High School who helped us on such short notice, they were a life saver and we couldn't have done it without them. 

 

 

 

Thank you Sam's Club

    On Sat 9/20/08 we went to Sam's on Sky Park Dr in Torrance and passed out fliers to collect donations for our troops. Thank you Sam's and to the people of the South Bay for making the day a great success! We received more than we'd ever hoped for and we are able to send many more packages to our men & women in harms way. 

    We thank the many volunteers that helped us from the ROTC, Boy Scouts, Explorer Scouts, Marine Science Magnet, & friends. It would not have been as successful without their help.

 

 

    One of our Marines was injured after stepping on an I.E.D. We had a box for people to write Get Well or Thank You messages for Brian. We received  hundreds of notes from customers & pictures from children. The compassion of the South Bay will be remembered by Brian, his friends, & family for a life time to come. 

 

 

 

Thank you Ralph's Market 

Mike passed out fliers to collect food for our soldiers at Ralph's Market on Western in San Pedro on 9/13/08. We'd like to thank Ralph's and the people of San Pedro for their generosity. We will be able to send many more packages to our men & women fighting for us. Our list of soldiers keeps growing everyday.
