Starting in November through December 2012, SAME Denver Metro Post will give back to their local community by holding two donation drives: Angel Tree at Fort Carson and Marion House Clothing & Blanket Drive.
Angel Tree at Fort Carson
In support of the Warrior Transition Battalion and their families at Fort Carson, SAME Denver Metro Post has partnered with the Fort Carson Soldier and Family Assistance Center (SFAC) to collect gifts for children through the Angel Tree Program. Participants will receive the name, age and wish list of a child to "adopt” for the program. Wrapped gifts will be collected and then presented to the children at Fort Carson to open for the holidays.
Marion House Clothing & Blanket Drive
The Post will collect blankets, coats, jeans, socks and other warm clothing to donate to The Marion House, a local Colorado Springs homeless shelter. SAME sustaining member Coover-Clark & Associates, Inc. has pledged to match each blanket donated. Through this initiative, the Post aims to help the less fortunate endure the tough Colorado winter.
