The health and safety of our families is always our top priority, and we are committed to supporting all efforts to help keep our community healthy and strong. Although we're disappointed that we won't be seeing you all for the next couple of weeks, we promise to keep you posted with new dates and information as it becomes available.
If you’ve ever considered donating to support the life-improving services we offer or have previously given, today is the day we need you to step forward. Today, COVID-19 has the nation at a standstill. But tomorrow, we will still be providing vital services that our military families depend on. Can we count on your minimum donation of $25?
WE MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH! So we've been working hard to move this program online. We know it's not the same as spending time with your teachers and friends in person, but we're hoping to create a fun, educational and warm community online. Registered participants will receive an email on Tuesday and Thursday morning with a link and instructions for that week. Each online session will include a circle time video, instructions for the craft and a printable activity sheet. This program is FREE and open to all active duty dependents ages 18 month to 5 years.

For the past 25 years, the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads has taken this recognition further by hosting the Five Star Military Family Recognition Luncheon. This annual event recognizes active duty, enlisted service members and their families who best represent service to their country and commitment to their local community through a spirit of volunteerism. Families are nominated by their Commands, family, friends and peers.
During the 2019 holiday season in Hampton Roads, we approved 129 applications for rides home, reuniting a total of 269 family members. 180 adults and 89 military kids got to spend time with family because of this program. Jack Daniel's contributed a total of $53,305 to fund rides home... wherever home may be. From Oregon to Puerto Rico, our military family was able to make the dream of a holiday spent together a reality.
