Marines, we've kind of stalled at $400.00. To inspire donations, we are planning to be more visible at State meetings. Watch for us next at the Department Winter Rally in January 2018. The Cpl. Stanley L Moore "Loose Change" canister is almost full after just three meetings. The best way to hand over the funds to the Foundation is to donate a like amount to the go fund me account and keep the money in the loose change canister. Thanks everyone for your positive response to the foundation.
