Marine Corps Family Foundation

The Marine Corps Family Foundation was created in 2004 when Operation Santa USMC grew from a small local outreach to a national project. Volunteers and contributors from all over the country came forward to support deployed Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. In three months, the Operation Santa project successfully sent Christmas stockings and gifts to over 6,000 US Marines who spent the holidays away from family and friends.

With the success of this project, community interest in supporting Marines grew, and MCFF established itself as a charitable organization in order to coordinate projects, collaborate with volunteers and supporters, and communicate ways to show our dedication and support for our deployed troops.

Today, Operation Santa USMC is just one of MCFF's many projects that were initiated in an effort to show tangible support for our deployed Marines and their families here at home. We invite you to get involved, to share your ideas, and to become part of our Marine Corps Family.

This is a great project and one well worth getting involved with. Connie is a great person to work with. I have made stockings several years now and I continue to enjoy doing them. They have had packing parties so packages can get shipped and they have always been very organized. If you don't volunteer for anything else, this is one you should!

I love working with all the volunteers who make things happen with the Marine Corps Family Foundation. Supporting deployed Marines and troops is important...we let them know we appreciate their service to our country. Messages from the frontlines of the war in Afghanistan makes our efforts more real and meaningful. Volunteering for the Operation Santa, Operation Sunscreen and Marine Corps Kids brings me a true feeling of patriotism. I challenge all American's to show their support to our military...volunteer to brighten the life of a Marine or soldier.
