• New sweat pants and hoodie sweat jackets (gray, black and dark blue);

• Lounge/PJ/sleep pants (any color);

• White crew-neck undershirts and T-shirts;

• Personal care items (razors, lip balm, travel-size shampoo and travel-size shaving cream); and

• Cash or checks. (Checks may be made payable to Marine Corps League #547).
