STRENGTHENING OUR MILITARY FAMILY (12)

BRINGING MILITARY FAMILIES TOGETHER FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Jack Daniel's and the Armed Services YMCA Operation Ride Home program have helped over 10,000 military service members make it home for the holidays. Operation Ride Home provides financial assistance to eligible active duty junior-enlisted military and their families to travel from their duty station, back home to spend time with their loved ones. Reconnecting military families during this special time of year is what Operation Ride Home is all about. Jack Daniels and the Armed Services YMCA Operation Ride Home Program has raised over 2 million dollars and has been strengthening military families since 2011.

In 2021, in Hampton Roads, we approved 151 applications for rides home, reuniting a total of 206 family members. 154 adults and 52 military kids got to spend time with family thanks to Jack Daniel's contributed funds of $60,661. This year, we are hoping to reunite even more military families in 2022.
