Volunteering at 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Attack
Organized by: Orlando Devil Dogs Young Marines Hawaii Trip
Building future leaders one Young Marine at a time.
April 05, 2016
EVENT DATE Dec 03, 2016
The Orlando Devil Dog Young Marines has been named as the 2016 Unit of the Year for the State of Florida and the 3rd Young Marine Division for the 4th time in the past 5 years. This is due to the dedication of our volunteer staff and hardworking young boys and girls who give their time and resources to help others in need.
In order to continue our mission of “Strengthening the Lives of America’s Youth” and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded businesses or individuals just like you, we wouldn't be able to serve those in need. This is why we are asking for you to help us make our trip to attend the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor a reality. Our trip will take place from December 3rd to the 8th, 2016. Our goal is to raise $58,575 or more to send 36 plus Young Marines and chaperons to Honolulu, Hawaii to volunteer in the commemoration of such historical event. Your contribution will help cover the airfare, ground transportation, accommodations, meals and other activity fees and expenses.
Participating Young Marines will be taking part in several community service activities from cleaning up a beach to wreath laying ceremonies. These Young Marines will also take part of the Memorial Parade where they will march and carry banners to represent the ships that were attacked. They will be attending a memorial service to honor those lost during the bombing and they will also be interacting with survivors of this dark time in our history. Our Young Marines will most certainly have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the impact of events and individuals in the history of United States during World War II.
They have worked very hard to demonstrate they will take full advantage of learning and will appreciate all that they will be experiencing. Furthermore, they will bring it back to their unit and communities in Central Florida to continue to enhance one of their most important missions: Veterans Appreciation! We appreciate your contribution in making this opportunity come true for our deserving Young Marines.
Thank you in advance and remember to KEEP CHARGING!!!
The very appreciative parents and ODD staff
