Our top tier American fighters and heroes have given everything for our freedoms and for us to sleep safely at night. Their families should know in these uncertain times that America has their back! The children of these Tier 1 Operators are preparing to return to school and would need the proper educational resources to be successful in the upcoming school year. We want to take that burden off of the parents!
Everyday these children live in extraordinary circumstances. It is with your help that Redcon1 Foundation was able to provide these school supplies, each hand-packed into 300 branded drawstring backpacks with the following supplies:
- 2 One Subject Spiral Notebooks
- 4 Two-Pocket Organizer Folders
- 1 Zip Top Canvas Pencil Case
- 1 Pack of #2 Pencils
- 1 Pack of Ballpoint Ink Pens
- 1 Pack of Crayons
- 3 Highlighters
- 1 Twelve-Inch Ruler
- 2 Easy Twist-Up Glue Stick
- 1 Pencil Sharpener
- 1 Pack of Pink Erasers
- 1 Scissor (Kid-safe)
- 1 Composition Notebook
- 1 Pack of Colored Pencils
In addition to the school supplies, each bag was given a single REDCON1 MRE Bar (Cookie Dough), a letter of encouragement to the child going into the school year, and some “kid fitness” inspiration complete with exercise descriptions and photo demonstrations!
With over 60 children receiving their backpacks off base, the remaining bags were brought onto base where each parent received one bag per child in their household. We were able to cover school supply needs for families of as many as 6 children! Not only were parents thankful but the children were incredibly grateful for every item they received. We hope this gesture made the return to school not only easier, but exciting! MISSION COMPLETE.
