The Newman's Own Awards for Military Community Excellence - 2004
Fort Lewis, WA
The "Lindsay Project," sponsored by the Washington PAVE (Parents Advocating for Vocational Education) at Fort Lewis, WA, is a volunteer project named after a young child with special needs who could not participate in community events. The program uses liaisons in each troop unit to reach out to families with children with special needs, with an emphasis on deploying units. The results have been decreased returns of deployed service members for family problems. This group received a $5,000 grant.
