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.
