Every year since 2009, Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund (MMHF) 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. It is a powerful reminder of the true meaning of Memorial Day.
By sponsoring a flag, you can ensure, not only that this important tradition continues in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, but you can also 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 receive referrals, advocacy, and a powerful peer network of support.
Please support our bereaved military families by sponsoring a flag that will be planted at the Soldiers & Sailors Monument on Boston Common.
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! We cannot do this without you.
