The Stano Foundation is a nonprofit organization that was founded in June 2015.

Being a military mom, Founder and President, Paula Stano, was involved with the SAMs (Stand Alone Marines) during her son’s boot camp experience. These young men/women had no support or anyone to take them home after graduation or to be with on the proudest day of their lives.  The battalion her son was with started a Facebook page to help support them by listing all the donations they needed for the SAMs so they could be prepared for their next endeavor.  It hurt her heart to read about this and she knew she had to do something.  Paula reached out to family, friends and through the power of Facebook, she was able to collect so many donations that she needed to borrow a Chevy Tahoe to drive them to South Carolina.  It was truly a humbling experience for Paula to see so many people come together to make this happen; it was amazing.  This is when the realization occurred that this was only the beginning of her volunteering experience with the military.
