Non-profit organizations present Sailors with letters of appreciation

By Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

Sailors of the Naval Nuclear Power Training Unit Charleston community service division were presented letters of appreciation from the Lowcountry Food Bank and the American Red Cross May 20, 2016, at Joint Base Charleston, S.C. More than 100 sailors transitioning through the community service division have volunteered nearly 10,000 hours in support of local nonprofit organizations since the program began October 2015. The program, created for sailors on hold from NPTU, awaiting orders due to medical, legal or other reasons, provides the opportunity to give back to the local community while resolving personal matters. The Lowcountry Food Bank and the American Red Cross presented the organization with letters of appreciation.
