2012 Kids Serve Too-Scholarships for Children of the Deployed
When parents serve in the military, their kids serve too. Kids Serve Too is a program created by military families in support of military children who currently have a parent deployed overseas. Children in military families make sacrifices and serve their country as much as anyone in uniform. Military children quietly shoulder part of the family’s burden of overseas deployment by making sure their mom or dad know they support what they are doing and believe it is important. The daily struggles and personal sacrifices of these children go unnoticed – they receive no medals, ribbons or accolades for their contributions or their unconditional support.
The mission of Kids Serve Too is to honor, support and thank military children by offering programs and resources that demonstrate our appreciation for the sacrifices they make and the unique challenges they face. This partnership between Kids Serve Too, Fairfax County and the General Dynamics IT Fairfax Division offers scholarships to military children so they may reduce some of this stress through recreation and leisure programs. Scholarships may be used for camps, sports leagues and a variety of recreational activities.
