Our Projects
Below is a list of our activities and projects that are funded through donations:

::: The Care Package Project™
We ship 700-1000 care packages every 10 weeks to Marines stationed in combat zones. Marines overseas send us names and addresses of comrades who aren't receiving mail or packages from home. Organizations, individuals, and communities are encouraged to support our troops by sponsoring care packages and donating shipping funds. As per Department of Defense policy, addresses are not given to the public.

::: Operation PAL™
In addition to sending Prayers and Letters to injured Marines, we provide one lunch each month to families at Bethesda Naval Hospital caring for their critically injured Marine. We hope to increase the number of hospitals we support with added donations to this project.

::: General Operating Fund
Donations to the General Operating Fund are used to finance the web sites and bandwidth used for disseminating information, educating families about the Marine Corps, and the message board communities that keep the families in touch with one another during bootcamp and deployments.

We encourage you to make a donation in support of Operation PAL™. To date we've sent over 80,000 cards and letters to our wounded heroes. Our cost for postage and supplies is in constant need.

Our online donation form allows you to make a donation in honor of a particular servicemember. All donations are acknowledged with a receipt. Your receipt will reflect your "In honor of" donation.

Donate to Operation PAL™ in memory of Lance Corporal Daniel “Gabe” Raney, KIA July 9, 2010 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The family has requested donations to Operation PAL in support of injured Marines and Corpsmen. This request was made on July 15, 2010. For each donation, a card will be mailed to the Raney family with the donator's name and address.
