Stand Alone Marine Program
The Stand Alone Marine Project – the SAM Bag – was started at Gilligan’s of Beaufort by one of the manager’s who was also a Drill Instructor’s (DI) wife – Jennifer Iddins. There are some Marines who graduate from the historic Marine Corps Recruiting Depot at Parris Island, SC who do not have any friends or family attend their graduation. The SAM Bag project arose out of a strong desire to make sure each of these Marines had someone there to shake their hand, congratulate them for their accomplishment, and thank them for their service.
Prior to graduation, Marine families organize donations for goody- bags to hand out to the Marines. These families pack a variety of treats and hygiene items for the Marines to take with them to their journey. Through local volunteers, these bags are delivered to the Marines just before they board the bus on to their next destination.
The volunteers chat with the Marines, give them fresh baked cookies, and listen to their stories. The Marines truly enjoy the personalized interaction.
All extra donations are either saved for a later graduation’s SAM bags or packed into care packages and sent to deployed troops!
