Operation Military Kids

Operation: Military Kids is the U.S. Army's collaborative effort with America's communities to support children and youth impacted by deployment. Regardless of whether families are experiencing deployment for the first time, the second time or another in a series of multiple deployments, OMK’s goal is to connect military children and youth with local resources in order to achieve a sense of community support and enhance their well-being.

How can you help?

At all our events WID-MI collects items to include in OMK ‘Hero Packs’. These packs serve as a tangible expression of support for Military Families and are filled with mementos and items designed to help keep military kids connected with their deployed parents. They are a way to hand-deliver a salute to military children and youth for their strength and sacrifices while parents are deployed.

What items should you bring?

  • Disposable cameras
  • Calling Cards
  • 100% cotton pillow cases

Please note that OMK cannot accept items with company logos.

Thank you for your support!
