Mary/Martha Circle of the Patuxent Presbyterian Church of California, Maryland
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the women of the Mary/Martha Circle of the Patuxent Presbyterian Church of California, Maryland for steadily supporting the Warrior Support Team—East™.
The Mary/Martha Circle is a group of women who meet at the aforementioned church the second Thursday of each month from September through May to study the Bible, pray together, and provide outreach assistance to various organizations, and these women have been supporting the Warrior Support Team™ since back when the program was still Purple Heart Family Support™.
Over the years, they have donated children's toys, coloring books, Christmas stockings, gatorade, and other items to distribute on the hospital floor, at the USO, and to have on hand in the Marine Liaison Office's supply closet.

Recently, the women of the Mary/Martha Cirlce answered a call from the Marine Liaison Office's Family Support Coordinator. The women learned that three Marines undergoing treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center have babies on the way and decided to make blankets and buy layette sets and diapers for the expecting families.
Additionally, Marine Parents contributed bottles of baby wash and shampoo. We appreciate all the hard work these women have done for us over the years, and look forward to working with them more in the future. Thank you ladies!
