Military Family Appreciation Month
November is a time where we recognize the unique sacrifices and challenge family members make in support of their loved ones in uniform.
At the Y, we offer a 25% discount to Veterans. Click here to get started.
How can you support a military family?
Say thank you
Acknowledging their sacrifice goes a long way.
Make a card
This is a great way to get your children involved. If you know a local family, have your children make thank you cards and send them over!
Offer workplace flexibility
Military families often function as a single family household, when their partner is deployed overseas. Please be kind to these hardworking families.
Perform an anonymous random act of kindness
Send delivery, a gift card, or something else! Be creative!
Thank them on social media
A public shout-out is a very kind thing to do (as long as you have permission).
Ask how you can help
This may be the most important one. This will open the door to a conversation about their needs.
