The Heart Of A Marine Foundation has been busier than ever!
Since our anniversary celebration on Tuesday, November 17, we have been making a difference in so many veterans' lives!
We are honored and proud to have made new friends within the veteran community, and assist them in any way we can.
Here is what we have accomplished:
~New winter coats for the Oak Park Veteran Center Veterans. A total of 100 new winter coats were donated for their Thanksgiving and Christmas parties for homeless veterans and their veteran clients.
~New winter coats for the 3 Hope Manor locations in Chicago. Hope Manor I, II, and Hope Hall are residence for homeless veterans. Over 100 new winter coats were donated by The Foundation to these homeless veterans.
~The Foundation in conjunction with the CCC of Elk Grove coordinated our area Toys for Tots campaign. Over 200 toys were given to the 2/24 Marine Regiment on December 1.
~Fifty new winter coats were donated to the DuPage County Veterans Center on December 8 to those in need at their facility.
~On December 8 the residence of Fisher House (on the Hines VA campus) were guests of The Foundation for a day of pampering at Mario Tricoci Salon and Spa in Schaumburg. Each resident received 2 Mario Tricoci services, and the women received a full make-up makeover. Following their pampering at Mario Tricoci, The Foundation took them to dinner at The Ram Restaurant for a reveal dinner!
~The Foundation donated over $35,000 (retail value) of USMC logoed outwear to the Marines at the Wounder Warrior Battalion at Camp Lejuene. Donation was received at their location on December 11.
We are busy serving our most deserving, and look forward to 2016 and continued service. Join us! We guarantee, nothing is more rewarding.
From The Heart Of A Marine Foundation family,
A VERT HAPPY NEW YEAR!
