Military Childrens Collaborative Group
The media gallery is where we show the impact our movement has had on the lives of military connected children and their families.
We engage military connected children when presenting them with our “Recognition for Serving our Country” certificate at special events, school assemblies, and children’s workshops. Each year, the April Month of the Military Child events grow in size and support, as we bring our community together to acknowledge and thank military connected children for silently serving our country.
Military Childrens Collaborative Group requests all levels of government leaders to acknowledge the Month of the Military Child by offering their Office Proclamation or Resolution. We are proud that our movement has recognized over 1,000 children and growing every day.
We have coverage of scout troops earning their “Proud to Support Military Kids” scout patch at an event by volunteering and providing services to honor military children for April the Month of the Military Child events.
Our videos were created and developed by professionals and amateurs. We appreciate the many photographers volunteering at our events and willing to offer pro-bono services in support for our cause.
