When asked “What do you want for Christmas?”, many of the wounded Marines at the Wounded Warrior Barracks replied that they wanted to spend Christmas with their families.
Many of these brave men and women cannot afford the cost of travel, therefore, the MOPH-Wounded Warrior Leave program was established.
This project buys airline tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars, bus tickets, whatever is necessary to get these wounded Marines together with their families and grant them their Christmas wish!
Please join us Thursday, December 1 from 6-8pm for a fundraiser at New Bern Golf & Country Club where our guests of honor will be some of the wounded Marines. There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Bring a check payable to “MOPH-Wounded Warrior Leave”.
Our donation goal is $50 per person but we are happy to accept any amount you can bring. Even if you can only stay a short while, please come by and meet these brave Marines and let them know we appreciate the sacrifice they have made!
If you have other obligations but are still willing to help with any amount of donation, please mail a check, payable to: MOPH-Wounded Warrior Leave. Send to 1914 Trent Blvd, New Bern, NC 28560
If you know someone that would be interested in attending and/or donating to this worthy cause, please pass this on.
100% of the money raised will be spent to unite these wounded Marines with their families for Christmas!
If you can attend, please RSVP by email as soon as you can or call 252-638-6868 and ask for Ruthie.
Thank you for your support,
