They also left us with a household tip to keep your mirrors fog free, rub shaving cream on the mirror then wipe it off and your mirror will not for up. Great tip!

" I am dumbfounded and totally amazed at this place"

Army Veteran Juan brought his Army buddy Rob to the VMC for his first visit and he was so deeply touched. The whole experience took Rob a little time to sink in and to get the items that he needed.

Both of our Army Veterans left with cleaning products, personal hygiene products, clothing, food, iron, broom, mop, thermal underwear, a jacket for Rob’s son, diapers, wipes, pots and pans.

They both were so grateful to have the help in saving them money at the store for the everyday items they use.

Juan said he is going to come back and volunteer. We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you both fore your service, it was an honor to serve you both.
