COVID-19 Semper Fi & America’s Fund Response
Our Team at Work
Every day our case managers, veteran leads, and visiting nurses are checking in on our combat wounded, critically ill, and catastrophically injured service members and their families.
We are utilizing Skype, Zoom, calls, texts, and emails to keep those we serve socially connected-assessing needs, providing education and providing financial support when needed. Given the “physical distancing” occurring across the country to benefit the health of every community, social connection is more important than ever!
- Gift baskets and food mailed directly to our families
- Gift cards to online retailers for food items, to limit risk exposure
- Lodging when needed for families during hospital stays, or relocation
- Immediate financial assistance for daily costs for those who are facing loss of income
- Gas cards and uber gift cards to assist with travel to hospitals and clinics
- Transportation costs for family members traveling to care for those who may not be able to assist themselves

From Those We Serve
“Hello everyone at the Semper Fi & America's Fund. Thank you so much for the wonderful box of soup. We are so grateful especially currently due to the coronavirus. We are staying at home as required. I only leave the house for essentials. We pray you all stay well and thank you very much.”
"I want to thank you for the Spoonful of Comfort box that we received today. We had just heard on the news today that our county has the first confirmed coronavirus case. Our state is up to 63 cases but today when the news came out that there is one in our city...it was very scary. Because of the risks with so many people in and out of our home each week, I have canceled all but one aide that helps to care for my husband. Many thanks to you and all the generous donors at the Semper Fi & America's Fund for all you do for our veterans and caregivers!”
”Just want to say thank you for all you guys do. You didn’t give up on us just because we moved out of the hospital. You didn’t give up on us when we moved into this new house. You are continuously checking on us and we just want to say thank you.”
“It’s so amazing how in the midst of this pandemic and taking care of your own families, that you go beyond to give such a humbling gesture stating and reaffirming every time that you are here to serve and that we are not forgotten. Thank you so much and I pray blessings over you and all the wonderful donors that make this stuff happen. May God bless you and may he see us through this pandemic."
