LARGO - The Armed Forces History Museum has three special events planned in February, including Molly's Adopt A Sailor Item Drive, Breakfast with Champions and Wheels for Warriors Bike Night.
Molly’s Adopt a Sailor Item Drive on Friday, Feb. 15, from 4 to 6 p.m. Molly’s Adopt a Sailor Project, a broad-based, collaborative and community initiative, supports deployed United States Military Personnel by way of cards, letters and care packages filled with love, support and necessities from home. Thus far, the 501(c)3 organization has reached nearly 20,000 sailors, marines, soldiers, airmen and coasties nationwide. Mothers and communities from all over the United States pack boxes and ship them.
Molly’s Adopt a Sailor Project embraces three divisions: We Ship Love, a monthly adoption program of all branches; Special Hugs, with focus on supporting combat hospitals with supplies, patient needs and morale boosters; and We Stitch Love, a division that creates hand-made pillowcases and other items.
Admission to the event is free to those who bring items to be placed in care packages. Suggested items include non-perishable food items (no chocolate), hygiene products, books, blank note cards to send back home, writing tablets, magazines or cards and letters from home. Those who wish to attend the event but do not bring an item for care packages will be admitted for $15. Tours of the museum, light hors d’oeuvres as well as beer and wine will be available. The museum will also offer M8 rides. Up to three people may ride for $50.
