The Kyle Palmieri Foundation’s mission is to provide support for those who have given the greatest sacrifice. We proudly support the following organizations and programs.
Squad21 is a military recognition program that offers active and veteran service members the chance to attend a New Jersey Devils home game in Newark during the regular season. Playing upon Kyle’s team number of 21, twenty-one people are randomly chosen for each of the 21 designated Squad21 games and invited to bring a guest. As part of the program, the service members and their guests have an exclusive meet-and-greet with Kyle following each game. Fans can support and interact with the Squad21 program using #Squad21 on social media.
The National Military Family Association is the leading nonprofit dedicated to serving the families who stand behind the uniform. Since 1969, NMFA has worked to strengthen and protect millions of families through its advocacy and programs. They provide spouse scholarships, camps for military kids, and retreats for families reconnecting after deployment and for the families of the wounded, ill, or injured.
The Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN) is the voice of all military women – past, present and future. SWAN is a member-driven organization advocating for the individual and collective needs of service women. SWAN is guided by the priorities of their members, who include thousands of women ranging from general officers to junior enlisted, retirees, to women veterans from all eras, as well as allies and supporters. SWAN is committed to seeing that all service women receive the opportunities, protections, benefits and respect they have earned through their service to our nation. Their goal is to ensure all service women have access to the information, tools and support they need to reach their personal and professional goals during and following their years of service.
Pets for Vets was created to improve the lives of both Veterans and animals by bringing them together in a thoughtful, caring way. Their goal is to give back to the brave servicemen and women who have given everything to our country, while finding homes for deserving shelter pets. By matching the right pet with the right Veteran, everyone wins! Shelter animals receive a second chance at life and Veterans receive a second chance at health and happiness.
