SSMAC Care Package for Soldiers Event

SSMAC (Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coast Gaurd and Airmen's Club) is partnering with the NYYRC on assembling care packages for soldiers. They take care of sending the packages out for us but our part to help out is to collect what we want to pack, bring it with us on Monday, July 8that 6:30PM, and go from there!


The Soldiers', Sailors', Marines', Coast Guard and Airmen's Club is located at 283 Lexington Avenue.  We will start at 6:30pm with a short presentation (15 minutes) and then we'll start to work on the packages together.  Any questions, please contact our Secretary Michael Brach at[masked]
