Sometimes strengthening our military family looks like a table full of yummy goodies! Thanks to incredible sponsors like USAA, Navy Federal Credit Union, Keller Williams Coastal Virginia, Sentara Medical Group and Delphinus Engineering, we were able to provide over 1100 Thanksgiving meals to military families in Hampton Roads. "I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. This was our Thanksgiving meal thanks to the basket of food we were blessed with."

With each new session of Operation Hero, we are blown away by these amazing military kiddos. In addition to learning about team work last week, participants were getting to know each other. General Stanford Elementary School students Haylee and Scott were both relaxed and confident presenting what they learned about each other. They made that oral presentation look like a piece of cake ๐Ÿฐ. We love Op Hero days!

Operation Ride Home brings families together

During the 2019 holiday season in Hampton Roads, we approved 129 applications for rides home, reuniting a total of 269 family members. 180 adults and 89 military kids got to spend time with family because of this program. Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey contributed a total of $53,305 to fund rides home... wherever home may be. From Oregon to Puerto Rico, our military family was able to make the dream of a holiday spent together a reality. You can read more about the impact of this program here: http://bit.ly/2QBHJL2
