The mission of the Army Strong Community Center is to develop resilient families through effective community partnerships, thus enhancing the strength of our total force and the communities where they live. This event is a collaboration of the DCC Human Service Club and SEGA. Cake and drinks will be provided.

Mon, Nov 18th at noon                      Unveiling of DCC Veterans Mural                                                                           Lounge across from room 5025

Come check out the new veterans mural paying tribute to our MCC veterans. The mural is in honor of all branches and was painted by MCC art students! This is a must see!!

In addition, we are conducting Operation Comfort from November 1st through December 2nd. The goal is to send disposable razors and body wipes to military personnel currently serving overseas. These items tend to be in short supply, particularly for those serving “in the bush” in war zones. Body wipes could include baby wipes, diaper wipes or plain wipes, especially in larger packages. Drop off boxes are available at the security entrances on the 4th and 5th floors, outside of Dick Stewart’s office (room 4234) and in the Student Services Center. Cash donations are also welcomed to help defray postal costs, see Dick Stewart to make a donation.

Thanks in advance for your support of our military students!!
