The holidays can be difficult time for many, especially during the pandemic. This holiday season we are asking our members to participate in the reverse advent calendar collection. Set up a box/bag at home and add an item each day. 

Below is a recommended list. The cost to include all of this in your donation is between $30 and $50 depending on where you shop, but your donation will make someone's holiday season. Donations can be brought to the Post and we will ensure that all donations get brought over to the USO in Mayport to help military families. Bags to collect your donation are also available for $2.00 per bag at the Post. See Brandi or Scott to pick up a bag. 

This year in addition to Toys for Tots drive we are also working with the local community and getting gifts directly to the the children in need in our community. If you would like to participate please visit our angel tree. Pick  an ordainment with a child's name and gift request and let us know who you picked.  All gift requests are under $30. Once you receive your child's information you go shopping and bring back your donation to the Post and help make a child's Christmas. 

Please only take an ordainment if you are going to follow through. We want to ensure that every child on our list has a fabulous Christmas and that none are left out. These gifts are all going to local families or Wolfsons Children's Hospital.
