The Coast Guard continues to serve through the government shutdown, but unlike other services, they are not being paid. The American Legion is helping. Read all about it here.
The SAL will be collecting winter coats, hats, and gloves for needy veterans. United Military Care will have a collection box in the Social Quarters near the men’s room.
Toy’s are coming in on a daily basis now. We are swamped with work to get them sorted for distribution. Please Help!
The address is:
829 Pickens Industrial Dr. Suite #8
Marietta , GA 30062
This is the Cobb county location and it is within 3 miles of American Legion Post 29.
Hours of operation are through 12/21:
M-F 12 PM to 4 PM
Weekends 10 AM to 4 PM
If you have an hour or more available in your day, please contact Olga T Noel.
Olga has been sorting toys and most of the time she is the only one there doing this job. We need help to get it all done by 21 December. Thank you for your consideration. Be advised this is a warehouse type environment (i.e. cement floors, wear comfortable shoes, it can get cold with the shipping bays open to receive toys). If you are into “counting steps” you will get a whole lot in but the work is gratifying.
If 1 or 2 people want to come help, they can just drop in. If 4 or more volunteer, please call to schedule a slot. Too many at a time gets to be chaotic and counterproductive.
The district is conducting Service Officer Training this Saturday. See the flyer below.
