We began serving lunches for Marine families at Bethesda Naval Hospital in January of 2007, and more recently, dinners for the Wounded Warriors of Balboa in late 2008.
We are currently spending $2600 monthly; not only do we need to cover these costs, we would like to commit to more dinners and lunches for our wounded warriors and their families.
Our mission is to provide support to the families waiting at the bedside of their injured or ill Marines and Sailors by providing meals and fellowship during the weekends at hospitals around the United States and to encourage support of our wounded military personnel in communities throughout the United States.
Our current focus is Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland and the Wounded Warriors Barracks in Balboa, San Diego, California. We hope to provide additional support at additional locations as funding through donations allows.
We have a team of Purple Heart Family Members that are working with us to provide additional information and support services to the family members of injured Marines. We’re putting together information and links to family members in a “learning center”.
If you are interested in helping out, of if you have some information to share, please let us know. Use the “contact us” link on the left side navigation.
