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! This will enable us to give a gift bag to every single seafarer on 65 ships that call on our Port this Christmas. 90% of the goods we use every day are brought in by merchant seamen who leave their families and friends for months at a time so we can have a more comfortable life. If you are a Rotarian or know a Rotarian, please thank them.
