There are many ways to support our bereaved military families and honor their loved one’s service and memory. MMHF offers meaningful, tangible ways to show your support through financial contributions and community volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
Year Round Campaign – Sponsor a Memorial Day Flag: Every year we enlist hundreds of volunteers to plant this beautiful Flag Garden at the foot of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Boston. The garden is made up of 37,000 American flags, each representing a brave Massachusetts service member who gave his or her life defending our country since the Revolutionary War. Please sponsor one or more of the flags in honor of our fallen service members and their families and help us provide vital services and support to this special group of Americans.

Volunteer for our Memorial Day Flag Garden
Each of the 37,000 flags we plant at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument will represent every brave Massachusetts service member who gave his or her life defending our country since the Revolutionary War. The completed garden is a breathtaking tribute to the true meaning of Memorial Day and a powerful message of community support to the families of these fallen heroes that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.

September 11 Service Project – Care Packages for Our Troops & Military Families – Boston
The Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund invites you to take part in a care package service project to support active duty service members and veterans, as well as a pledge drive to support local Gold Star & Survivor (bereaved) military families. Held at the Mother’s Walk on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston, this event will offer you the opportunity to give back to our community in a positive way on September 11th, now a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Activities will include building 500 military care packages for our service men and women overseas, writing letters of support to our troops, building care packages for our local veterans in need, and a pledge drive for the families supported by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund.
