Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Marco Patriots is a non-political, volunteer-based, disaster response and community service 501c3 non-profit based in Marco Island, Florida. Through volunteers, Marco Patriots seeks to reignite the spirit of community through service to underserved communities affected by disasters.

Marco Patriots provides volunteer civilian services to those affected by disasters to include: Communications, hot meals, financial assistance to underserved organizations, supplies and emergency rescue assistance.

Marco Patriots holds monthly in-person and online fundraisers to fund our missions. We are equipped with rescue vehicles and cooking equipment to serve those in emergent need. Funding is available to assist small organizations that meet our criteria to help their community with immediate needs or we can provide supplies to them directly.

Marco Patriots has responded to 15 natural disasters in person and several others through financial and supply assistance as of January 2023. We have provided safety assistance, supplies, food and funding to hurricane, tornado, earthquake and flash flood emergency-affected communities. We have also provided assistance to authorities for several missing person searches.

In contribution to our own community which consists of 57% persons over the age of 65, we established a committee that was successful in convincing the county to install and maintain a mobility mat on to the public beach to make it accessible to everyone including those who are differently abled.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our volunteers stitched 20,000 masks for Collier County healthcare providers when PPE was scarce and assisted our elderly community with vaccination appointments. In addition, we provided financial assistance to our local food pantry and to furloughed workers.
