OPERATION WARM HEART HELPS MARCH FAMILIES

This is the time of year, that family and friends make preparations for the Holidays. This year, many families were hit particularly hard with furloughs, work stoppages and a cut in work hours. Since the early 1990’s, Operation Warm Heart has tried to ease the burden of those families who have hit a bit of a rough patch by providing non-perishable food, toys and grocery cards. All items are donated by members of the March community and given to March military, civilian and NAF families. While you are out shopping, take a few minutes to think about those on March who may need a little help this year and pick up a toy or a nonperishable food item to place in one of the donation boxes located at the Main gate, Law Enforcement desk and throughout the base. We will be accepting donations until Tuesday, December 17. If you have any questions, please E-mail Billie Edwards at Billie.Edwards.1@us.af.mil.
