Our Adopted Ships

Adopting a ship allows the Philadelphia Council to provide support that will benefit the ship’s crew and families now, and into the future.

Since adoption involves a continuing commitment, plans for such support must take into account our Council’s financial resources as well as the cooperation and willingness of our members. Financial support can flow directly to the ship’s MWR Fund, or the Council can make direct gifts of items or awards to the ship and/or crew members.
