The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund honors Military Service and sacrifice by providing scholarships to veterans and military family members, particularly children of our nations fallen and disabled.
Mercedes-Benz of Huntsville is proud to partner with the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund as a Corporate Sponsor.
Inspired by the death of Colonel John “Johnny Mac” McHugh, who was killed in action in Kabul, Afghanistan on May 18, 2010, the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund is dedicated to helping military families in need. With a mission to give back to those who have given so much, the foundation has successfully raised money to help surviving military families acquire financial stability.
“At Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund, we believe it is our duty to help the children of the fallen realize their college dreams. It’s the least we can do to honor the service and sacrifice of their parents.” said MaryEllen Picciuto, President of Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund.
For every Mercedes-Benz vehicle sold in the U.S. this year, Mercedes-Benz will make a donation to the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund. Time and again, America’s military members and their families are asked to give of themselves for the rest of us. While they ask so little in return, we owe them so much.
Since 2014 the Johnny Mac Fund has raised over $20 million. In spite of the pandemic the Johnny Mac Fund provided $3.835 million in grants. For every $1 raised, 95 cents is designated for the kids.
