Following the government shutdown this year, we received this very special note:
Dear Second Harvest,
On behalf of the Coast Guard Spouses’ Club of Greater New Orleans, local Coast Guard service members, and their families, I would like to sincerely thank you for your assistance during the recent government shutdown. Our active duty members and civilian employees continued to keep the watch during this stressful and unprecedented period. Your generous donation of food, pantry items, and diapers helped offset daily living costs for personnel and their families and provided a much needed boost to morale.
The purpose of the Coast Guard Spouses’ Club of Greater New Orleans is to support the morale and well-being of Coast Guard families through charitable and social activities. By your donation, you partnered with us in our mission and helped reach hundreds of Coast Guard families.
You may not know the individual names of all the people you impacted, but we all felt the circle of community you provided to us with your donation. We appreciate your generous support. Thanks again.
