The Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter are looking for new ways to raise funds in order to support our worldly good toward Veterans. Feel free to submit any and all ideas to us.
Google's OneToday project helps us to support some of our fundraising efforts. Please feel free to check out our current Campaign on OneToday.
Emergency Fund for Veterans
The "emergency fund for veterans" is for veterans who have short-term emergency financial needs, such as skills training, loss of support, severe illness, and catastrophic accidents. It is a one time per person grant, limited to no more than $1,000. The funds can be used to pay for food, electric bills, mortgage, rent, etc.
MI-2 had a great time at the Golf outing. Visit the Facebook Fan Page for the Loyal Escorts for pictures & Video!
Not only did we have fun at the packing party, Holiday for Heroes, but we also had fund decorating trees at the Veterans Hospital in December!
We've also started a new campaign directed specifically to support the emergency fund grant. It's available on Google's "One Today" program!
We are also on Facebook & Youtube!
On the Local Level
The Loyal Escorts work along with WMA members on charitable chapter activities and within their communities.
Some of the programs we are proud to have done in the past, and are looking forward to doing in the future include:
Who are we?
Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter (LE's), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is the auxiliary of the Women Marines Association. The purpose of the Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter, is to assist the Women Marines Association and to perform educational and charitable works within their communities. Since 1972 we have supported WMA in reaching its national goals in many ways. We contribute an annual scholarship to further the educational goal; we sponsor and present awards to chapters for noteworthy accomplishments at each convention, thereby promoting the seven purposes as spelled out in the WMA Bylaws. Members are pledged to "aid, assist and escort WMA members in the performance of their duties as delegates to the Women Marines Association convention and other WMA functions". The Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter meet biennially in conjunction with the WMA national convention at the place designated as the WMA convention site. Members attending the convention register as "Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter delegates", by presenting a current membership card as credentials and by participation in the general meetings at which all society business is transacted.
