Help Jr. Soldiers Return Home for Holidays with Jack Daniel’s Operation Ride Home
Jack Daniel’s is honored to partner with the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) of the USA on their Operation Ride Home campaign as they work to reunite our service members and their families during the holiday season.
They are kicking off this year’s campaign with a $100,000 donation, and hope you will do what you can to help them in the effort.
The trained staff of the ASYMCA will work closely with military commands and committed volunteers in every branch of service to identify those service members and families in most need of financial assistance and to assist them with travel. Through travel vouchers for plane tickets and pre-paid debit cards for gas, lodging and food, they hope to surpass the overwhelming success of last year’s effort that helped send 721 Fort Campbell soldiers and their families home last year.
The ASYMCA offers no-cost and low-cost programs for nearly 500,000 active duty-enlisted military and their families each year at 33 branches and affiliates with hands on innovative programming nationwide. For the sixth consecutive year, the Armed Services YMCA was rated in the top 3% of charities nationwide by Charity Navigator in 2011.
Your tax deductible donation (tax ID #36-3274346) to the ASYMCA, a top-rated non-profit, and Operation Ride Home will make a significant difference in the lives of junior military service members and their families this holiday season.
