Military care package items needed for the Jeff Coombs Memorial Foundation and Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance Service Project

July 29, 2019 @ 8:00 am - September 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

As they have done for the last 10 years, the Jeff Coombs Memorial Foundation and the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund will host a service project in Boston on 9/11 — the national day of service and remembrance.

The Jeff Coombs Memorial Foundation asks you to remember Jeff and all who were killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 through an act of service or kindness. What better way to remember all those who died than by doing something for the troops and veterans?

One thousand care packages will be assembled on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 from 11:00am-2:30pm on Boston’s Rose Kennedy Greenway.

You’re welcome to come help assemble the packages, but help is needed to collect the items. Below are the items unspoken-for so far.

Please recruit your office, church, service group, youth group, or neighborhood to collect as many of a particular item as you can. If you choose to adopt an item or two, please let Christie Coombs know on Jeff’s Foundation’s facebook page.

Items are needed by September 1, 2019. Please note the details for each item!
