Join Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund, Home Base (a Red Sox Foundation & MGH Program) and Project 351 in commemorating the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks through service supporting our troops and military families. You can participate in our National Day of Service and Remembrance project by helping us fill military care packages for our troops overseas as well as our veterans in local shelters, writing letters of support, and donating to the bereaved military families supported by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund. Items received will be packed and shipped out on September 11th in Boston. Help remember the lives lost to terrorism by supporting those still in harm’s way.
How can you help? You can:
Volunteer to assemble care packages with us on September 11, 2022 between 11:00am – 2:00pm on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Rowes Wharf Plaza, between High Street & India Street, across from the Rowes Wharf Hotel. Volunteers must pre-register at this link. Private companies seeking to send teams of employees are asked to contact us at 888-909-HERO for a sponsorship package.
Host a collection drive of goods for the care packages through your office, neighborhood organization, or faith community. Please contact us at 888-909-HERO for an updated list of goods needed for the packages, or shop online with our Amazon Wish List for veterans in need or the troops. Be sure to make your shopping count even more by using Amazon Smile and selecting Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund as your charity of choice. Donations must be brought directly to our event site on September 11th before 9am (we cannot accept donations mailed to our office). Please call us if you need help coordinating your donation drop-off.
Sponsor a care package with a donation of $35. Proceeds will be used to help fill and ship the care packages, as well as to fund the programs and services benefitting the families served by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund. All donations are tax-deductible.
