Start Strong, Stay Strong

Our nation’s military families deserve every opportunity for a bright future and to know that all are grateful for their dedicated service to our country.

In America, summertime means pools, popsicles, and picnics… but for military families, summer is often no picnic at all. It means packing up and saying goodbye to friends as you prepare for another change of station. It means starting over, again.

Military families move, on average, every 1 to 3 years, constantly starting over with friends and personal networks. Many military families face crippling expenses during the summer months as they move to new communities far away. The transition can be especially hard on military kids. Your support of our mission will help us help military families start strong and stay strong from move to move…all summer long.

Start Strong Stay Strong is designed to bring much-needed attention to the challenges that military families face throughout their service to our country and to provide tangible ways for Americans to support them.

We are proud to launch this initiative with P&G. Our aim is to change the lives of those who serve our nation and their families.

Join us in creating impact – from our military family to yours.

Together we will help create the stability, connections and comfort that our military families deserve to start strong in their community and stay strong for their family in the process. 

It’s a huge blessing to our family knowing that we are getting the backpack and all the school supplies. It’s one less thing to worry about and a huge relief.
