500 Holiday Boxes For The Troops

500 Holiday Boxes For The Troops

The Women Marines Association (WMA), The Romeo Masonic Temple, the Romeo Post Office and the surrounding community comes together to pack 500 boxes to ship to our service members deployed in harm's way. On 15 November the women Marines of the Women Marines Association will once again work with the Romeo Masonic Temple and the Romeo Post office to pack up 500 holiday boxes for the troops.

The packing will be at the Romeo Masonic Temple located at 231 N. Main, Romeo, MI from 10am to 2:30pm.

The Motor City Chapter of WMA has been sending boxes to our troops since 2004. Marines taking care of our military. This support of course could never happen without the dedicated support of the community. During the holidays we always ship keeping in mind that our military service members are away from those they love. Each package, with card and letter lets them know that they are not alone. They are in the hearts of each and every American and that each box is From Romeo with Love.

As we wind down military operations they also are winding down the supplies that are sent. Most meals consist of MRE's and little more. Our troops are asking for protein items, personal hygiene items and beverage mixes. Hot chocolate and the powered instant cappuccino mixes have been requested.

Join us as we help our fellow service members. Bring your items, help us pack and share the camaraderie and Esprit. WMA ships to all branches of the military. If you can't attend you can still sponsor a box. Each box costs $15.90. Help us make a difference one box at a time. Monetary donations go 100% for postage. Donations can be brought the day of the event or sent to WMA Motor City, PO Box 590, Romeo, MI 48065. We thank you for your support.
