Military Families Ministry
Ways you can get involved with MFM:
Be a Project Partner: MFM partners with schools, churches, businesses, and community organizations on our projects. We will assist you in organizing a project for your group or organization. We have worked with several schools on school-wide projects. Projects include Treat Bags for Valentines Day and Easter, Mission Kits, Socks for Soldiers, Stockings for the Troops.
Be a Donor: We are fully funded by donations we receive from individuals and community partners. We rely on these donations to continue our mission of supporting our troops and their families. There are several ways you can help us by being a donor:
Donate items that we need for projects and care packages - click here for a list of items we collect year round.
Donate funds for shipping - our biggest expense is the shipping cost to send packages to our deployed troops. Monetary donations should be made directly to one of our ministry groups. Please contact the group leader you would like to donate funds to for details on making a monetary donation.
Donate your time - we need help to collect, sort, pack, and ship donations. Please contact the group leader of the ministry group closest to you for details on current needs.
Host a donation drive - get your employer, church, or community group involved in doing a donation drive to collect items for our projects and care packages.
Make cards or write letters: In addition to service members, MFM supports several chaplains both stateside and deployed. The chaplains like to have cards and letters containing personal messages on hand to give to soldiers when they visit their unit. We solicit cards and letters from schools, veterans groups, churches, and any person or organization that wishes to send a message to a service member. We have several groups across the country who make home-made cards for our troops and we are always looking for more. Details for making cards or writing letters.
Knit or crochet: MFM sends prayer patches to individual service members or entire units, those serving stateside and those deployed. In addition to the service members, we send patches and prayer shawls to the family members. The patches and shawls are prayed over by one of our ministry groups prior to distribution. The patch is something that the service member can put in a pocket as a reminder that people back home are praying for his or her safety. We also send prayer patches along with the letters we send to the chaplains, so they can provide a letter and a patch to each service member they see. We need an abundant supply of prayer patches and shawls. Guidelines for making prayer patches and prayer shawls.
Join our prayer team: We have a team of dedicated prayer warriors who respond quickly to all prayer requests we receive. We can never have too many people praying.
If you are a prayer warrior - join our prayer team.
Start an MFM group or partner ministry group in your church or community: Our vision is to establish MFM groups and partner ministry groups in churches and communities across America, who will support the military families in their communities.
