BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS MILITARY HEROES FUND

EVENT DATE: May 01, 2019

THE STORY:

You can support the bereaved military families served by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund (MMHF) by sponsoring a flag that will be planted at the Soldiers & Sailors Monument on Boston Common. Every year since 2009, Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund has worked with hundreds of volunteers in our community to create a breathtaking garden of flags for Memorial Day. Each of the 37,000+ flags planted this year represents a service member from Massachusetts who gave his or her life for our country in armed conflicts since the Revolutionary War, and is a powerful reminder of the true meaning of Memorial Day.

By sponsoring a flag, you can ensure that this important tradition continues in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and you can provide much needed support to military families today grieving the loss of their loved ones who have died as a result of active duty service since 9/11/2001. Families served by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund receive grants to pay for:

 

  • funeral costs not covered by the military
  • medical and mental health care
  • mortgage/utilities/grocery & other basic needs

In addition, bereaved military families served by MMHF also receive referrals, advocacy, and a powerful peer network of support.

Your donation can be made in memory or honor of your own loved one's proud military service. Tributes will be recognized on our web page.

Thank you for your support!
