I learned about Our Military Kids through a radio commercial over six years ago. Since that time, my wife and I have done an annual fundraiser for this absolutely amazing group of patriotic individuals. For the past five years, my office has also committed funds to Our Military Kids resulting from our annual charity golf tournaments. Finally, we get involved with an annual Wounded Warrior Family Christmas Gift Wish List effort that is directed towards the families that received grants through the organization.
My commitment to this these folks is based solely on the fact that Linda Davidson and her small staff of paid employees and volunteers goes way beyond the norm. I noticed that I am only one of two donors who wrote a review. If you are looking for an organization to throw your support behind, Our Military Kids should be at the top of your list!
Thank you so much you helped pay for my kids swimming lessons while my husband is deployed! Very helpful!
