Help us help the men and women who put their lives on the line for us everyday.
We are raising $10,000 to help start and maintain the On Guard Emergency Relief Fund. The Fund will provide relief to a CO and their families who is experiencing a hardship. Whether it is loss of work due to illness or injury or disaster such as fire, flooding, we want to make their lives a little bit easier and we need your help to do it.  Any amount can make a difference.

Relief will be distributed monthly when needed in the form of financial aid or gift cards up to $1,500 to CO’s in Massachusetts.
Once half our goal is reached, we will begin accepting applications/nominations.
