The members of our military make sacrifices day in and day out. They are away from their families, often facing harsh conditions, and have to carry out difficult missions. The good news is that there is a way to show our support for the troops. That is through the Red Shirt Friday movement that encourages individuals to wear red on Fridays to show their support for the military. By purchasing red apparel at Red Shirt Friday, you can support the troops because we donate at least 80% of our proceeds to them. Keep reading to learn more about four organizations that Red Shirt Friday gives to that do a great job supporting our troops.
Active Valor is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to giving new purpose to veterans of our military. They do this by connecting veterans with children of our nation’s heroes so that they can serve as mentors to them. This gives veterans the chance to pass on their skill sets and provide comfort and knowledge to children that no longer have access to it.
Patriot PAWS is a member of Assistance Dogs International (AD). They train dogs to provide assistance to veterans that need help with accomplishing daily tasks. The goal is to increase self-sufficiency and provide support for wounded veterans.
Workshops for Warriors
After leaving the service, the members of our military can struggle to find meaningful employment. Workshops for Warriors aims to fix that by training veterans for careers in advanced manufacturing.
Our Military Kids
Our Military Kids is a non-profit organization that provides benefits to military families. They do this by covering fees associated with athletics, fine arts, STEM, and tutoring programs for children while their parent is on deployment or recovering from a severe injury. Our Military Kids has provided almost $24.5 million in support to families throughout the country.
