Our Military Kids
Our Military Kids offers grants up to $500 for enrichment activities and tutoring for children ages 3 to 18 whose parent is deployed overseas with the National Guard or Reserves, or severely injured. Our Military Kids grants are made to honor the sacrifices military families make and to ensure that their children have access to support to help them better cope with challenges arising during a parent's deployment or injury recovery
