2002 - Family Readiness Support

Family Readiness Support

The Newman's Own Awards for Military Community Excellence - 2002

In a July 10, 2002, ceremony, the Army received three awards for $2,000 each for special projects in their communities.

This is the third year that Newman's Own, Fisher House Foundation, and Military Times Media Group have jointly sponsored the program which seeks to reward ingenuity and innovation for volunteer organizations working to improve military quality of life. The challenge was straightforward: "Present an innovative plan to improve the quality of life for your military community and receive funding to carry out the plans."

Six judges, two from each of the sponsors, evaluated each entry based on the organization's creativity, innovation, and impact on their communities. To be eligible each organization had to certify that it was a private or nonprofit organization operating with authority of a military installation commander.
