Chapter Kicks Off Its
2018 Fund Raising
Our Chapter launches its annual fundraising drive on the weekend of November 9-10 at Jensen’s markets in Palm Desert and
Palm Springs. Through the courtesy of Matt Zack, CEO of Jensen’s markets the Chapter will set up donation stations at the front of both markets easily identified by US and Marine Corps colors. The kickoff will be the first of a series of weekends running into late December.
Board member Harry Covert is compiling a list of Chapter volunteer watch-standers to work at least one three hour watch during the initiative.
If you have not already placed your name on the volunteer list contact Harry at 760 200 0094 to sign up.
Not only is this assignment fun you will no doubt be moved by the expressions of support and gratitude we receive from residents of the Coachella Valley as they donate to our Chapter.
So saddle up and sign up!
