We are proud to announce the North Florida chapter has granted a wish for a family in Florida. Thanks to your donations and generosity, this deserving family was able to receive the help they needed.
Derek has been in the United States Navy for around 15 months. He is based in Jacksonville, Florida, and needed our assistance in paying for childcare for his four-year-old son. His wife had been experiencing personal health issues which prevented her from being able to care for her son by herself during the day while Derek was at work. This resulted in financial hardship for the family since they are currently living off of one income.
To ensure their son was cared for, the couple applied for daycare fee assistance via NACCRRA, but still needed financial help to cover the rest of the expenses. Derek reached out to Wish for Our Heres for assistance in securing the remaining funds needed for daycare, so his son could be well cared for while his mother received the support and care she needed.
We were able to help grant the family with $510 to cover the cost of four weeks of daycare so Derek’s wife could continue to focus on her personal health.
Help us help more active military members by making a charitable donation to Wish For Our Heroes. Every dollar helps.
