The Corpus Christi International Seamen's Center is proud to announce that we have partnered with the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi and Rotary District 5930 to promote and fund our Christmas-at-Sea Appeal, known as the Backpack Project. Because of Rotary's generosity for this project, we are able to increase our Christmas gift bags from 1,000 to 1,500!
Join us on June 25th as we celebrate National Seafarers' Day. This year's theme is "At Sea for All" which aims to highlight that seafarers serve at sea not just for the shipping industry but for all of us. The purpose of the theme is let the world know that seafaring is indispensable to the world.
These seamen are standing in front of the United States Merchant Marine flag that was given to us by the Department of Transportation. Not many were given out, so we were lucky. We even got two of them.
With pride and honor, we salute our armed services and merchant mariner veterans. To all who have served in our military, thank you. The sacrifices you made in honor and duty to our country are worthy of praise.
