Meet Joe. Joe is a proud Marine Veteran who visited us at the VMC and couldn't have left any happier. He spotted our USMC sweatshirts and hats and put them right on. He also received body wash, food, personal hygiene and paper goods.

As Joe was preparing to leave, a generous friend brought in a Nuwave oven and Joe jumped for joy. "This will help me cut down on fat and grease, what a great bonus to a beautiful day."

We love when our Veterans leave with a big smile! You made our day beautiful for sure, Joe.

What's truly amazing, is watching those who have already given so much... give even more. Chris, an Army Veteran, and his family - held a fundraiser for us to help other Veterans in need. They had 31 bags stuffed with hygiene items and used it as an opportunity to do what they could.

"My kids wanted to give back to our Vets so we held a fundraiser stuffing the bags."

Chris was pleasantly surprised when he was given a winter coat, some VMC T-shirts and some hoodies and socks for his wife and daughters... Whenever something is needed, we do what we can to fulfill it.

Thank you Chris for your service and thank you for the awesome donations for your fellow Veterans. We are so thankful and grateful to you and your family.
