Seaglass Salvage Collects for Semper Fi Fund in honor of Memorial Day
Seaglass Salvage May Market Supports Semper Fi Fund
In 2003 a group of Marine spouses organized welcome-home activities for wounded service members arriving at Camp Pendleton after serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. The spouses made travel arrangements for families who could not afford airfare, provided a specialized van for a quadriplegic service person and distributed care bags filled with toiletry items and phone cards. This is how the Semper Fi Fund was born, and supporting those who serve is what it’s all about.
Semper Fi Fund has grown significantly since its start in 2003. It now offers a service member and family support program, a transition program and an integrative wellness program. The Semper Fi Fund is exceptionally rated among veteran nonprofits. They pledge to stay by the service member’s side throughout recovery and help that service member as they transition back home.
Always striving to give back to the community, Kelli Benton, owner of Seaglass Salvage Market, chose the Semper Fi Fund as her chosen charity for the May market. Donations for the fund will be collected at the market on May 17, 18 and 19, 2019.
Brunswick County is surrounded by active-duty and retired service members, and this foundation gives the community a chance to give back to those who gave so much.
Seaglass Salvage Market recently expanded and welcomes shoppers to come check out the new space and vendors. At this weekend’s market there will be local food trucks and vendors selling everything from fresh eggs to dining room sets.
