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 2019, in Hampton Roads, we sent 269 family members home utilizing over $53,305 contributed by Jack Daniel's. This year, after not being able to offer the Operation Ride Home in 2020 due to the world worldwide pandemic, we are hoping to reunite even more military families in 2021.
