Outreach Programs

The mission of Marine Parents is two-fold: to educate and support Marine Corps families and their Marines, and to encourage community awareness for troop support. Our various outreach programs help us to realize that goal as we develop and fund outreach programs when needs of Marines and their family members are identified. We are unique in that we bring those services into the communities for the general public to participate in the troop support.

 

The links to pages and groups below are for the MarineParents.com Outreach Programs and our fundraising initiatives.  Please join a group to stay up-to-date on the outreach programs in which you are participating. 

 

The Care Package Project™-
 We ship over 1100 care packages four to five times a year to Marines stationed in combat zones. Family and friends can request a package to be sent to their deployed Marine at no charge. Organizations, individuals, and communities are encouraged to support our troops by working with us to donate both funding and care package items. As per military policy, addresses are not given to the public.

 

Purple Heart Hero Support™-
 Purple Heart Hero Support™ is a first response effort improving the quality of recovery for Purple Heart service members and their families by offering immediate support, care, and guidance upon casualty notification through recovery and beyond medical retirement. The program offers a learning center for Purple Heart families and serves meals at Naval Medical Center San Diego and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center when cafeterias are closed over the weekend.

 

Operation PAL™ -Operation Prayers and Letters™ is a project that supports our troops who have been injured. We work with families to setup a private mailing address for the injured service member. People, church groups, and school children around the US add the wounded troops to prayer lists as well as write cards and letters which we forward in huge envelopes to the wounded heroes wherever they are rehabbing. The morale boost is incredible!


Team Marine Parents™ -Team Marine Parents™ is composed of teams of individuals nationwide that participate in walks, runs, marathons, bicycling, triathlons, swimming, motorcycle runs, and other events nationwide. The goal of Team Marine Parents™ is to promote an awareness of "Support Our Troops" in communities around the United States through participation in and donations to troop support programs from MarineParents.com.

 

 

Gold Star Family Support™ -
 We offer private services to Gold Star Families, those that have lost their son or daughter during active duty with the Marine Corps. Meeting and communicating with families who understand the pain and grief can help. We give them that opportunity, no matter where they are in the world, on a private message board and with an annual gathering. Access to this area is limited to Gold Star families only.
