Our Mission Statement says it all: "Providing a touch of home to our United States Marines with our care packages; our Families and Veterans to feel part of a community that understands; and our Wounded to know they are not forgotten...We are MCFSC."
We hold various meetings, lots of fundraising activities, opportunities to chat, to craft, to knit, to socialize, and to find information about the Marine Corps. We also work with the Warrior Foundation in San Diego CA to assist our Wounded military in the various hospitals in the San Diego area.
Meeting days and times:
Our primary meeting is our Monthly Packing and General Meeting beginning at 6:30pm at 8384 N High St, Worthington OH 43068. This meeting occurs the second Friday of every month.
