If you have a loved one or know of someone who is in the military serving overseas with an APO/FPO address, and from Macoupin County please register his or her name with the Macoupin Military Support Group at firstname.lastname@example.org , call at 217.556.7357, or check their Facebook page at Macoupin Military Support Group.
The Macoupin Military Support Group (MMSG) is a 501c3 not for profit organization that supports our military by sending monthly care boxes to military from Macoupin County who are serving abroad. They use donated non-expired items as well as monetary donations to help cover the cost of postage. As always, the kindness and generosity shown by our community throughout the past are greatly appreciated.
There is no charge to the service members receiving the packages or to their families. The care package consists of hygiene items, such as deodorant, razors, shampoo, dental items, etc. as well as snacks and homemade goodies. The goal is to make sure our servicemen and women know that they are not forgotten while being deployed in the service of our country.
If you do not know of a military person serving overseas, but would like to help by making a donation or joining our organization, the MMSG meets on the second Tuesday of every month at #40 Carlinville Plaza, next to D and D Fitness. Boxes are packed at 6:00 p.m. and their monthly meeting follows afterward. They invite anyone to join them and SUPPORT OUR MILITARY.
