Thank you for considering a donation to the East Valley Young Marines. The Young Marines is a 501c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
Your contribution to the unit will help to insure that we continue to educate and inspire our youth by taking educational trips, purchasing necessary equipment and participating in challenging activities.
In the past, donations have been used for trips such as Code Talkers Appreciation Day, in Window Rock AZ, where the unit had the honor of escorting Navajo Code Talkers (WWII Native American heroes who used their native language to develop the only code that was never broken by the Japanese) and their wives to the event. During the ceremony, the Young Marines met The Navajo Code Talkers, their Families and many high ranking Marine Corps officers. They were then able to tour Window Rock and experience the rich history of The Navajo Nation. It was a trip they will never forget.
In addition to educational trips, available funds are used to reduce the cost of equipment. The unit is currently in the process of raising the funds necessary to help purchase 10 Daisy 1903 Springfield Replica Drill Team rifles for our armed drill team to use during the many up coming events, RESERVE YOU DATE NOW and have our Drill and Color Guard teams at your event. These rifles cost $250 each, so we can use a lot of help in this area.
