The Military-Civilian Charitable Foundation connects the Military-Civilian Club membership to groups who give direct support and services to military and veterans’ families. The contributions that club members provide give swift and meaningful assistance in a variety of programs. Through close contact with the military services and veterans’ networks, MCCF helps military and veteran organizations with their specific needs. A special Thank You goes to HEB for providing a $500.00 gift card to help with our holiday drive.
During the club year 2019 – 2020, many important programs received funds from MCCF:
JBSA Fisher Houses: MCCF donated gift cards for the residents of Fisher houses on Fort Sam Houston and Lackland to be distributed to families who live there during the medical treatment of family members. Audie Murphy Veterans Hospital also received gift cards and donations of clothing for homeless vets. Gift cards from HEB, restaurants, Walmart, and other local entities were given.
Blue Skies of Texas: Air Force Village requested and received a donation to provide protective masks for residents and workers considering the Covid-19 pandemic issues.
