Honor Flight Network

http://www.honorflight.org

The mission of Honor Flight Network is to transport American veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials that are dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. America thought it important to build memorials to the country’s veterans and Honor Flight Network feels it is just as important to give veterans the opportunity to see the memorials honoring their service. Based on 2008 statistics, the United States is losing World War II veterans at the rate’ of approximately 1,000 per day. Honor Flight Network will continue to fulfill the dreams of veterans and help heroes travel free to Washington, D.C. to visit the national memorials.

Marine Toys for Tots Foundation

http://www.toysfortots.org

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

 

The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
