Plexus Worldwide, a Scottsdale, Arizona-based health and wellness company, has made a donation of $64,104.75 to Our Military Kids.
“Plexus is proud to once again support Our Military Kids by donating a portion of our total sales from Veterans Day,” said Alec Clark, president of Plexus Worldwide. “When a parent’s deployment or battle injury brings stress to a child, it’s amazing what simple activities—like ballet or baseball—can do. We hope this donation will help those families who are struggling to deal with financial and emotional hardships.”
Our Military Kids, headquartered in McLean, Virginia, is a nonprofit organization that supports children of deployed National Guard and Reserve service members, as well as the children of wounded warriors from all service branches, by helping families to pay for youth participation in sports leagues, fine arts programs and academic tutoring programs. The grants fund activities to help children cope with stress and anxiety while their parents are recovering or deployed.
“Since 2004, Our Military Kids has positively impacted the lives of more than 50,000 children of military members throughout the United States by providing them with grants to stay active and participate in extracurricular activities,” said Linda Davidson, co-founder and president of Our Military Kids. “We’re thankful for the partnership we have with Plexus Worldwide and their continuous donations, bringing hope for these children and their families year after year.”
