At Move America Forward (MAF), we are a nonprofit military charity based in Sacramento, California, dedicated to supporting the brave men and women of our Armed Forces. Our mission is to provide emotional and tangible support to active duty troops deployed to combat areas around the world.
We believe that it is our duty as American citizens to show our troops that they are in our hearts and minds, and that we are grateful for the sacrifices they make to protect our freedom. That’s why we have made it our mission to provide individually addressed care packages, filled with the most requested items and a taste of home, to troops on the front lines.
Over the years, we have sent over 900 tons of care packages to deployed troops, and our efforts have been supported by thousands of pro-troop activists, veterans, and military families all across the nation who share in our unwavering support of the military men and women who are on the front lines of protecting our country.
In addition to care package support, we also engage in public education and awareness campaigns, such as national bus tours and public rallies, to educate the American public on the good works of our military men and women in combat areas. We also lead delegations to Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, taking Gold Star Parents to Iraq, working with military servicemen and women, pro-troop companies, service organizations, and many other supporters from across the nation to benefit our troops and military families.
At MAF, we recognize that our troops need to hear directly from American citizens affirming their support and providing some comforts from home. We differentiate ourselves from other pro-military organizations by making sure that our care packages are individually addressed to military personnel in combat areas. Each package includes a note or personal message that indicates their support and gratitude for the sacrifices being made to protect our freedom.
We are honored to work alongside other non-profits, military service organizations, corporate sponsors, community networks, and private citizens to support our military. Together, we can ensure that our troops know that they are not alone and that we stand with them in their service to our country
