Programs Supporting The US Military

Operation Brave Kids

Operation Brave Kids began as a means to provide children of a “called up” soldier with a $25 gift certificate for every month their Mom or Dad is off defending our country and us. These gifts may be used to purchase toys, clothes or, in many cases, food by their caregiver. The sad truth is that most of these families are not able to cope with the gap between civilian pay (and expenses) to a lesser military pay.
Project or Activity: Sponsor a child whose parent has been deployed.
