Our future meetings are being postponed due to the Covid -19 indoor restaurant dining restrictions.
For over ten years the Lake County Detachment 801 has collected toys and donations for Toys for Tots. Unfortunately, the pandemic has us staying home. Local merchants are not encouraging toy drop offs and our donation collection teams are discouraged from 'shaking the can' at the local food stores.
You can still participate by donating to our detachment. We work directly with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve unit MACG 48, stationed at Great Lakes Naval Base. Your donation here keeps your donation in Lake County to help our local kids.
You can write a check made payable to Lake County Det 801.
Mail it to us at:
P.O. Box 7732, Gurnee, IL 60031
Or you can use a credit or debit card to make a donation. See below.
We presented Colors at 1100 at the Lindenhurst Veterans Memorial Celebration.
Following the Lindenhurst presentation we quickly drove over to Gurnee to present Colors at 1200 at Mission BBQ.
