.... We need to send Christmas Joy to our Marines!! Please...............
Dear Marines and Friends

It is our goal to send at least 2,000 Christmas stockings to our Marine. Needless to say we need your help.

Please purchase a stocking or two and fill it up with goodies. Items like beef jerky, chap stick, hand warmers, lotions, hygiene items, nail clippers, candy, gum, decks of cards, puzzle books, stationary, hot chocolate, tuna and chicken packets, sardines, instant beverages, items like yoyo's, silly putty, small hand held games and a card from you. You can send chocolate as it is now cool enough for them to keep it. Anything you would place in a stocking for a loved one would be greatly appreciated by those who are so far away from their loved ones. Be sure to include your address on the card inside so the recipient can write back to you.

You can send your stockings and greetings to

Our Marines will make sure that they are given out. Please mail by Dec 8th to assure on time delivery. You can start shipping as early as Nov 15th.

We have many we would like to extend our holiday joy to. Use the USPS flat rate box. Shipping is only $8.10. You can make it as heavy as you can and the cost to mail is still only $8.10 You can send more than one stocking in a box.

Send one to each address please if you can. Feel free to send as many as you like. PLEASE pass the word to all of your friends and family. This is great for schools and organizations to work on as well. So please forward this request to those you know and trust who will be interested.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

We are still running our Adopt a Marine program as well. We continue to send the average of 200 boxes a month. We thank you for your support. Without it many of our men and women would get no mail.
You can check us out on the web. http://www.jocokyroots.com/OCFriends.htm We ship approximately 200 boxes a month out to our American Heroes.

If you are looking for a camostocking for your favorite Marine you may want to check out www.camosock.com These are great digicam stockings made by Marine veteran Bob Gilead. Best part is that 10% of all sales go to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. I have mine just waiting for Santa!
