JULY GET INVOLVED
Support Healthy Activities for a Military Kid
In honor of our July 4th Independence Day celebration, donate to Our Military Kids. 95% of your
contribution will go directly to the child of a deployed service man or woman to pay for sports participation, music, art, or dance lessons and tutoring.
These activities are not only nourishing and healthful; they help children deal with the stress of an absent parent or one recovering from severe injury
sustained while on active duty.
