A Time for Growth

December 9, 2015

Baseball and Dance are two of our most common grant activities. For many of our families, like Marcia’s, these opportunities are more than just ways to keep their kids busy. They are opportunities for children to grow socially and emotionally.montgomery Marcia is a wife and mother. Her husband, an Army veteran, has been diagnosed with TBI and PTSD; because of these injuries, he has been unable to maintain a steady job. Financially, Marcia would have been unable to enroll her children in activities such as baseball and dance. Luckily, since 2013, Our Military Kids has been able to ease the family’s financial stress and sponsor these wonderful kids. Aubrey is 10 and Blake is 7. Both have been enjoying their activities and are growing socially. Blake is a selective mute with ADHD. Since starting baseball he has come out of his shell and is making new friends. Aubrey has won dance scholarships to continue growing as a dancer. Both children have completely changed as a result of the Our Military Kids grants. “Our Military Kids has been wonderful and impacted our family in great ways by letting our kids feel normal and enjoy activities they love with their friends,” Marcia said “They also relieve a lot of stress for me and my husband as the grants help pay for the activities that we wouldn’t be able to afford.”
