Molly's Adopt A Sailor continues to demonstrate to all our deployed troops that their service and sacrifice are appreciated. We want them to know that they are loved and not forgotten. We adopt large groups, small groups, and Combat Support Hospitals in Afghanistan. We do this with the special bond that we are all military moms. We continue to be 100% volunteer and 100% of all donations goes to our troops.

Molly's Adopt A Sailor has been a truly amazing experience. We adopt a deployed unit every month, support combat hospitals in Afghanistan, and do Welcome Home events. We have moms who sew pillowcases so each month every adoptee receives one. We recruit family and friends to bring supplies to packing parties where boxes are filled for shipping. This group is 100% volunteer and 100% of all funds received are used to purchase items requested by the troops and to ship those items. The thank you notes we receive, bring us all close to tears. It is, indeed, an honor and a privilege to be a part of this wonderful organization. It is also an honor to make a difference in the lives of our deployed troops.

Please check out ALL the wonderful VOLUNTEERISM that goes on at Molly's Adopt A Sailor. www.mollysadoptasailor.com
Molly's Adopt a Sailor (MAS) is 100% run by military moms working towards a goal that NO US deployed troop will be forgotten while serving our great country. MAS supports OUR military through cards, letters and care packages. For the first 2 1/2 years of it's 3 year existance - all monies were 100% from our member (MOMS), -6 months ago America Voted for MAS to win a 50k grant in order to pay for all the shipping. Thank YOU AMERICA! Well soon the grant monies will be gone and we will be back to once again paying for 1 box at a time, Please support MAS and visit us on FB and see what else we have up and coming to fund our shipping.
Thank you for your support, TRULY!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have hosted "packing parties" for our deployed troops and have seen that there are some GREAT people out there that truly do support our young men & women fight each day for our freedom, Thanks!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

For MAS, to continue to grow, receive grants, donations so that MAS can continue!
