America’s youngest heroes may not serve in a traditional sense, but they make sacrifices as well. Modern Woodmen of America has committed to donating $30,000 to support Operation Purple camps in 2011. This will be completed by fundraising by members across the country and a donation from the organization.
To help military families, the National Military Family Association launched Operation Purple camps in 70 locations across the nation. At camp, children of deployed military parents come together to make friends and experience the great outdoors.
Modern Woodmen adult chapters and youth service clubs across the country are assisting in the fundraising effort by selling patriotic window clings. They aim to raise $30,000 for this top-rated charity during January, February and March.
