Mercer County Military Action Council (MCMAC) has once again joined forces with the Rotary Club of Robbinsville Hamilton for their annual Flags for Heroes campaign, marking the third consecutive year of their partnership. The campaign aims to raise funds that will be donated to nonprofit organizations in Mercer County, including MCMAC. The funds allocated to MCMAC will specifically support the Send a Hero Home for the Holidays Program, which facilitates the return of junior military members to their families during the winter holidays.
Regina Arcuri, chairwoman of MCMAC and Honorary Commander at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, expressed her enthusiasm for being a part of this commendable campaign once again. She emphasized the significance of the program in demonstrating appreciation for the unwavering commitment of junior service members and the sacrifices made by their families.
The Send a Hero Home for the Holidays Program provides military families with the opportunity to spend quality time with their loved ones during the winter holiday season, offering reassurance that their sacrifices are deeply valued. The campaign allows individuals to sponsor or purchase a flag in honor of veterans, active duty service members, local first responders, hospital workers, teachers, or anyone they consider a “hero” in their life. Over 300 flags are expected to be flown on the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital’s Hamilton Campus from November 1st to November 18th. The deadline for online flag orders is October 18th.
A dedication ceremony for the Flags for Heroes campaign will take place on November 4th at 11 a.m. on the hospital campus. Individuals who sponsor a flag for $60 will receive a digital certificate via email, a keepsake placard with their hero’s name, and recognition on the sponsor banner and website. For an additional $40, sponsors have the option to keep their sponsored flag. This year, sponsors also have the opportunity to donate their flag to an active military member.
Corporate sponsorships are available for those interested, and more details can be found on the website www.RHRotary.org.
MCMAC, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to supporting service members and the mission of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, as well as active-duty personnel, reservists, guardsmen, veterans, and their families residing in local towns.
