About Marco Patriots
Welcome to Marco Patriots - “Encouraging the Community to Engage Themselves to Make a Difference. Disaster Response & Community Service” a volunteer-based 501(c)3 non-profit.
Marco Patriots began as a group of concerned citizens in the Marco Island, FL area just before Hurricane Irma in September, 2017. We banded together, hunkered down and rode out a category 4 storm which caused severe damage to both property and the landscape. Together, we helped community members to stay safe and provide communications using social media platforms like Facebook and Zello.
Assistance came from across the nation to mobilize a great deal of funding and supplies to assist the community to heal. The outpouring of love and generosity was overwhelming.
Early in 2018 Marco Patriots was granted non-profit status and has continued to provide community service assistance to the area as well as communications and logistics assistance, rescue and/or relief services for hurricanes and wildfires.
Marco Patriots are committed to disaster response nationwide.
Marco Patriots is a humanitarian organization led by volunteers who are committed to providing relief to victims of disasters large and small and helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies and calamities in life.
