On behalf of The Montford Point Marine Association (MPMA) Chicago Chapter 2 members, we thank each and every person for their kind and thoughtful donations to help keep our Veteran’s facility open.
Veterans and all concerned have genuinely stepped forward to help maintain our purpose to provide a service to veterans and their families. MPMA now looks forward to a brighter vision of how the community can benefit more from the continued presence of Montford Point Marine Association at 7011 S. Vincennes.
MPMA membership is open to all military veterans, including a structure of support from their families within an Auxiliary and Society. We are humbly grateful for your concern and financial assistance through the Go Fund Me Page and other donations that have been made by mail and given in person directly to the Association.
Montford Point sends a special thank you to Comptroller Susana Mendoza, for her generous donation of $141,550! We will forever be grateful for her assistance to save Montford Point Marine Association’s Veteran facility.
MPMA will in the near future provide a public update with a full accounting of the total amount of funds that have been received. In addition we will share our plan of action of redeeming our taxes. Montford Point has received a new tax deadline of May 31, 2019. This extension will allow Montford Point to further explore options of collaboration with other concerned entities that want to help Montford Point move forward with the building repair issues.
Thank you again for your support for Montford Point Marine Association.
The MPMA Executive Board,
On behalf of the Members of
Chicago Chapter 2
Montford Point Marine Association (MPMA)
