MORE EVENTS & Projects

Thanksgiving Brunch

Before COVID, our Pride at Hope Manor hosted monthly brunches that they planned, organized, and executed to be of service and bring the community together. To continue giving back, Pride Members packaged and delivered a Thanksgiving meal that everyone could safely enjoy. The delicious food was provided by Jamison Soul Food in Chicago.

Originally planned as a Month of the Military Child event, our inaugural 5K race went virtual! All registrants received a t-shirt, race bib, and medal and were encouraged to complete a 5K however they'd like during race week! Participants from 8 states ran, walked, biked, and scootered to show their support for military families!

Virtual 5K Fun Run

This summer, we had to adjust our summer camp program to abide by CDC guidelines. Every morning, our "agents" dropped off boxes of materials for the days missions. Each camper got a walkie talkie and an iPad so they could communicate with each other throughout the day and the week culminated in a socially distanced scavenger hunt and family picnic! 

Secret Agent Summer Camp

Thanks to a generous donation from the Chicago Bulls, many of our Kids Rank families were able to attend home games against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Cleveland Caveliers. Win or lose, we love events that allow us to get all of our families together!

Chicago Bulls Game

This free babysitting event gave parents the chance to have a night out and older Pride Members the opportunity to use the babysitting skills learned at our Red Cross training last Spring. 30 children came to play games and do Valentine's Day activities.

Parents Night Out

Our Pride Members earned their Ribbons of Endurance and were pinned by their Pride Leaders in a ceremony designed to mirror what their parents may have experienced receiving their own achievements. The ceremony was the culmination of two months of working toward physical fitness goals and talking about the mental endurance of military kids. It was a great week of celebration attended by lots of proud parents and siblings!

Great Job!

Endurance Ribbon Pinning

Military children will often move outside the normal school year calendar.To help these children feel valued and recognized, we are collecting items to be given out when a family moves to or from the community

 

These Welcome and Farewell Kits will be shared with schools and partners to make sure that military children entering and leaving our communities feel a sense of belonging.

 

To support this effort, you can purchase items from our Amazon wish list. This list contains small items that will be sent to our office and put into the kits.!

Welcome &

Farewell
