1877 Society: Another Way of Giving For Today,
For Tomorrow, For Our Children

Captain Carl Hoyer of East Greenwich has served our country, state and St. Mary’s Home for Children as a dedicated volunteer. Hoyer served during the Korean War, ultimately retiring as a Captain from the US Navy Reserves. In his hometown of East Greenwich, he served on the School Committee and Town Council for many years.

Captain Hoyer continues to volunteer around town as a member of the Planning Committee of the East Greenwich Fire District and, as a board member of the East Greenwich Animal Protection League and the East Greenwich Education Association. He is also the treasurer of the Narragansett Chapter of the Military Officers’ Association of America.

Born of immigrant parents who impressed upon him that the United States is the greatest country in the world, Captain Hoyer believes if you work hard enough you can accomplish anything. After his father passed away, Hoyer joined the Naval Reserves at the age of 17 to help pay for college. Upon graduating from Boston University he was commissioned by the United States Naval Reserve and was mobilized during the Korean War.

As the father of four with grandchildren and a great grandchild, the needs of children in our state are an important issue to Hoyer. He understands that today’s children are the future of the world. As a former Board member of St. Mary’s Home for Children he has always generously supported the agency by contributing to both current and future needs. Captain Hoyer believes that everyone can help support St. Mary’s in their own way and make a major difference in a young person’s life. St. Mary’s is indeed, fortunate to have Captain Hoyer’s continued support.
