Supporting our Community

The Chester County PA Marine Corps League Detachment #286 has provided all kinds of support for veterans and their families in the Philadelphia area. Our mission is to always be here for service men and women. With our network of 150 local active and non-active duty US Marines and Navy Corpsmen, we help people every day whether they need support at VA hospitals, children's hospice, Color Guard services or Honor Flight program.

It's important to us that you are well taken care of, which is why our volunteers are always here to speak with you. Through the Wounded Warrior Program and Toys for Tots in Philadelphia, we have contributed much of our time to individuals and families in great need around Chester County. People travel from all over Philadelphia, Harrisburg and other parts of Pennsylvania to consult with our volunteers. We are dedicated to providing solutions for those who have worked hard and served our country faithfully.

  • Veterans at VA hospitals
