Having someone you love being deployed is beyond any emotion or feeling I could have imagined feeling. My brother is on his second combat deployment, this time to fight our enemy, ISIS.
I can't imagine having someone you love being deployed, and not be able to send them care packages and items they need due to financial reasons. Or being deployed, without any support from back home.
That's why I'm writing to you.
My brother has informed me that many Marines are in need, and don't have snacks or toileteries.
What can we do? I am trying to send 150 Care Packages by 9/1 to the Marines. Shipping costs are $14.55 each package, totally to over $2,150 just in shipping costs alone.
We are collecting Deodorant, snacks, beef jerky, toothbrushes, toothpaste, baby wipes, protein bars, protein powder, cereal, easy mac, blister block, and more. You can drop them off at The Triplicity Group at 1776 Washington Street in Walpole, MA.
You can also donate to the GoFundMe page for supplies as well, just please put "For Items" so we can make sure we have enough shipping money.
The pictures I've attached are pictures my baby brother, my hero, left on this deployment. I miss him everyday. I truly hope you all can help me meet this goal.
Who am I? I am a sister of a US Marine who is currently deployed in an effort to fight ISIS, whose fellow Marines are in dire need of supplies.
Together, lets show our Marines, our fighting force and our hereos that we, as Americans, care.
Thank you for helping my brothers men.
