Semper Fi Parents of the Hudson Valley
Registered New York State Charity
501c(3) Charitable Organization

Dear Neighbor,

Semper Fi Parents of Hudson Valley (SFPHV) is a volunteer organization that has been active in the community for the past nine years.  Our organization is made up of parents, spouses, friends, and supporters of all members of the armed forces.  While ‘Semper Fi’ is often associated with the Marines, the term ‘Semper Fidelis’ means ‘always faithful’.  We are ‘always faithful’ to our troops currently deployed as well as our veterans. 

Needless to say, the work to support our heroes is endless and we are always looking for new volunteer members to help with our efforts. Thankfully there are many wonderful organizations, large and small, throughout our nation who work to support our military in many ways.  SFPHV does its’ small part through:

  • sending needed personal supplies to our deployed troops (including ‘Operation Santa’)
  • participating in community events to raise awareness and give honor to our troops and veterans
  • assisting local veterans and families with meals during the holidays
  • outreach and assistance to local veteran support agencies
  • fellowship and support to families of troops
  • scholarships for veterans

Our focused goal is to support those who are in the military, both deployed and stateside. We engage with the community to raise funds to offset the cost of shipping packages to our troops and offer educational scholarships in the memory of our Fallen Heroes.  Additionally, SFPHV is proud to announce their collaboration with Dutchess County SPCA in a program called Hudson Valley Pets for Vets! This program will assist veterans with the adoption of a companion, and/or therapy dogs and/or volunteer opportunities with animals at the DCSPCA.  This collaboration presents many opportunities to enhance the lives of our veterans and well matched abandoned or unwanted pets.

It is with a most gracious heart that we express a profound gratitude for your support and generosity.  It is with your help that we can continue to provide support to our heroes.   

We hope the information we provide here will prove useful. Please check back often.

Thank you.
