Urgent Help Needed at Camp Lejeune

Marines, FMF Corpsmen, MCL Auxiliary, Devil Dogs and Friends of Marines –

 

As you no doubt are aware, a terrible tornado ripped through Jacksonville, NC this past weekend wreaking havoc on the town and on Camp Lejeune.

 

We have been informed that the Tarawa Terrace II housing area at Camp Lejeune has been heavily damaged and over 40 Marine families have been displaced or otherwise lost many personal items including food.  100-200 families have been affected by losing power which may be off for some time.  The Camp Lejeune ASYMCA and USO Jacksonville has requested donations of baby items (IE - Baby wipes, diapers, food items) ASAP.  They really request monetary or gift card donations to area business locations such as Wal-Mart, Food Lion, etc as these can be distributed quickly.  Our Marines need us and I know we will help.  Please contact Amanda Crompton, at Pioneer Services of Jacksonville, at  910-577-3036 for information on how to make your donations.  Marine Corps Commandant General James Amos toured the housing area and held a Town Hall meeting with area volunteer organizations. 

 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those so profoundly affected by this disaster.  Let's do all we can to help our fellow Marines and their families.  Thank you in advance for your support.
