CHARITABLE GIVING FROM THE NICHOLAS J. MURPHY FOUNDATION
The Nicholas J. Murphy Foundation was set up by the Murphy Family to honor their son, Nick Murphy, and to continue his legacy of giving, commitment and sacrifice in all that he did.

In addition, we will be providing support for members of the Armed Forces, with a special emphasis on service members the United States Navy, to help families struggling financially and to provide financial support for organizations in support of the military. Please support our military and make a point to thank him or her for their service, sacrifice and commitment to our country every time you see a member out in public. I can tell you from experience in talking with Nick that it means a lot.
