Semper Fi Fund hosts Purple Heart Ornament Packing Party

November 16th, 2011

Dale City, VA -- The Semper Fi Fund will be hosting a “Purple Heart Ornament Packing Party” on November 20 at VFW Post 1503 in Dale City. The local community as well as staff from the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment will be coming together to package over 9,500 ornaments for post 9/11 Marine Corps Purple Heart recipients.

This is the third year that the Semper Fi Fund has had the privilege of providing these special ornaments for Purple Heart recipients. The ornaments contain a rendering of the Purple Heart medal on the front, and the Semper Fi Fund logo and motto “Serving Those Who Preserve Our Freedom” on the back. Volunteers will spend a full day preparing and packaging the ornaments for shipment to Marines and Sailors so that they receive them in time for the holidays.

Volunteers are still needed between 8:00 AM AND 6:00 PM. Please contact Janine Canty at Janine.canty@semperfifund.org for more information.
