Our Military Kids Partnership: 3-4 Years Old Programs
In Summer of 2013, TDF was able to provide $10,000 to re-open the after school program for 3-4 year olds of wounded warriors. It had previously been shut down due to lack of funding.
Our Military Kids, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created to provide support and recognition to military children. This may include children ages 3 years through the 12th grade of deployed National Guard and Reserve service members, along with children of Wounded and Fallen Warriors from all branches of service. The grants to children pay for fees associated with athletic, fine arts, and tutoring programs. Our Military Kids’ grants keep military children engaged in activities of their choosing, helping to relieve the stress of separation from a parent by providing a positive distraction, minimizing emotional destabilization, building self esteem, and enabling academic achievement. http://ourmilitarykids.org/
A service member once said, “Please don’t send cookies, care packages, or socks. Just take care of our children.” Our Military Kids works every day to fulfill this plea.
Letter from Linda Davidson, Co-Founder/Executive Director Our Military Kids, Inc.
“I want to thank you again for your generous donation of $10,000 last September in your effort to restore the inclusion of 3 & 4 year children of Wounded Warriors to eligibility for our grant program. I trust you have received some postcards from children receiving a grant because of your generous donation. You have helped make a difference in their lives.”
