Operation Hero

Operation Hero is a free after-school program for military children in grades 2-5. It is designed to help these students address the unique challenges they face, such as frequent moves and deployments. Trained facilitators for Operation Hero create a safe environment for students to express emotions, receive academic and emotional support, and connect with peers experiencing the same challenges. Students in the program receive tools, including an innovative app to help with completing homework. This program is currently offered at Barkley and Barsanti elementary schools.

Operation Ride Home

Jack Daniel’s Operation Ride Home provides financial assistance to currently serving junior enlisted military and their families to travel from their place of military service back home for the holidays. Operation Ride Home started in 2011, and 822 individual junior enlisted service members and their family members have traveled for the holidays in 2018. Reconnecting military families during this special time of year is one small way Operation Ride Home is strengthening military families. Through generous support from Jack Daniel’s Distillery, soldiers and their families are given the opportunity to travel from post to home for the holidays. Click here to donate.
