Jack Daniel's Operation Ride Home has officially commenced for the 2021-2022 season. Though we weren't able to offer the program in 2020 due to the World Wide Pandemic, we approved 129 applications for rides home, reuniting a total of 269 family members in 2019. 180 adults and 89 military kids got to spend time with family. 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.
Each year, the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads recognizes one family from each branch of service for their outstanding commitment to volunteerism in our Hampton Roads community. Five Star Military Families are nominated by their Commands, family, friends, peers, or themselves.
THE NOMINATION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 31, 2021
We are looking for qualified candidates to join our team who possess the passion for creating success in military children's lives and who are just as committed to supporting our efforts to help keep our community educated, healthy, and strong.
