Charles Martin, Chaplin of the NE Alabama Marine Corps League, presented Certificates of Appreciation to the Northeast Alabama Community College Student Veterans Association and to the Christian Campus Ministries student group recently. The Certificates of Appreciation were for Outstanding Support of United States Marine Corps Reserve by participation in the annual Toys for Tots Program.
“It is a blessing that we are able to participate in the Toys for Tots Program,” stated Holly Williams, Co-Sponsor of NSVA and Financial Aid Assistant. “This is one of the many ways the faculty, staff, and students at NACC can be a part of giving back to our community. We are thankful for this opportunity and for our partnership with the NE Alabama Marine Corps League.”
NACC Christian Campus Ministries (CCM) was also one of the sponsors for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation this past Christmas. CCM Students Mark Davis, Lori Black, and Kelsey Wetzel spearheaded the drive. Students donated money. In addition, CCM male students competed in the No Shave November contest. Students had to contribute to the drive, each time they shaved.
CCM Minister Jeremy Wilson stated, “We are honored to be a part of such a long-standing ministry.” CCM Sponsor Sherry Whitten added, “This fundraiser encourages our students to serve and to give which is one our CCM missions. We appreciate the work of the Northeast Alabama Marine Corps League.” The NACC Christian Campus Ministries is sponsored by the DeKalb Baptist Association.
