On Wednesday more than 24 Marines came and helped out at Cornerstone Community Outreach, as a part of Marine Week 2009.
Talking with the residents, playing with the children, serving meals, and sorting mountains of donations kept them busy all day. The hauling of over 200 bags of donated clothing and bedding up six flights of stairs showed what great shape the Marines were in.
The Sylvia Center doesn’t have and elevator, and both the residents, and the supplies, go up and down the stairs all day long.
One Marine mentioned that he hoped that people know the need for an elevator, and that everyone would help raise the money for it.
CCO greatly appreciates the efforts of the Marines and the support staff to make this event happen, and be so much fun.
