Military Moms unite to send holiday packages to the troops

Posted: Updated:
TAYLOR, Mich. (WJBK) -

Recently dozens gathered at American Legion Post 200 in Taylor to put together some special holiday packages to be delivered to troops deployed overseas.

This is just one of the many ways the group Military Moms United works to serve those who serve us.

"It's an honor for me to serve others who serve so unselfishly" say Pat Enderle, whose son Ross was deployed with the Marines in Iraq, but passed away more than two years ago.   "I do it to honor him and my older son Ryan, a Marine Corps veteran and all those who are still putting themselves in harms way."

Chase Bank and Walmart donated items for the packaging and sent employees to help fill the boxes.   A snip of a holiday wreath was added to each package to remind our troops of home.

Cards from school children in Chelsea were also included.  
 
A special package was prepared and sent to Fort Riley, Kansas for soldiers who have recently returned from Afghanistan and are in need of basic items.

Military Moms United is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit charitable organization operating under the laws of the Internal Revenue Service and state of Michigan.
 
If you would like to make a donation to help the Taylor based Military Moms United organization in their mission to serve the troops,  please call 855-868-6483 or mail to:

All of our efforts focus on the support of each other and our children in the military. We support one another in our joys and our sorrows, with a level of understanding that can only be found among other Moms whose children are or have served in the military.

Besides the socializing and networking that take place at every meeting, we also participate in activities like the following:

- Packaging meetings for our troops.

- Crafting meetings to create items for our troops.

- The arranging of guest speakers knowledgeable in the needs of our military children and their family members.

- Activities organized by other groups that support our troops and/or veterans of the U.S. military.

- Holiday parades and other civic events.

All of our meetings and all of our activities are based in love, support, pride and friendship for our children and for each other.
