Mercedes-Benz Partners with Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund
The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund is an opportunity to give back to those who gave so much. Mercedes-Benz partners with this fund in order to help veterans and families of fallen military members and fund their college education.
What does the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund do?
The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund is a nonprofit organization focused on helping veterans and the children of those who have fallen. It started out in 2014 after Colonel John McHugh was killed in Kaul, Afghanistan, on May 18, 2010. This fund was originally started to get his five children through college, but has now expanded to providing education funds for veterans, military families and especially military children around the country. It has provided over $7.5 million college scholarships and helped over 1,000 students get the education they need.
There are many opportunities for scholarships, grants, and education programs through the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund. These programs include Army Scholarship Foundation, Commit Foundation, Folds of Honor, and Freedom Alliance. This Fund is not just limited to children, as they help veterans and other military family members as well. Those who are interested in helping the Fund are encouraged to visit its website. There are many different ways people can help out.
