With the combined wisdom of you and your team at MarineParents.com, I feel I have "grown up" as a Marine parent, and I am grateful for that. Thank you for your service.

Since the pandemic, we’ve struggled to make ends meet. The shutdown of graduations and our outreach programs during the restrictions created a down spin of donations and store sales we could not overcome. We are grateful for two PPP loans granted and forgiven, which saved the organization.

Store sales, which fund operating costs for our programs, decline week by week. We’ve cut expenses, salaries, benefits, and staff for two years. Our remaining staff of 9 plus 100 volunteers continue to carry the full load of our mission, including casework. This month, we switched to a cloud-based phone system and have sublet our warehouse for an additional $2000 savings. There are no other cuts we can make and still be operational.

Please, take action today. Help us continue serving Marines and their families. We truly hope we can continue to serve for another 20+ years.

God Bless and Semper Fi,
Tracy Della Vecchia, Founder and Mother of a Marine
