Earlier this week, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden–who launched Joining Forces, the White House initiative to support and honor military families–announced the Joining Forces Community Challenge, an effort to recognize the work done by the community to help military families.
For more information on how to submit an application or nominate an individual or organization to the Joining Forces Community Challenge, click here.
The submission deadline is September 30, 2011 and winners will be awarded non-monetary prizes and honored at an event in Washington, DC in early 2012.
First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden have launched a national initiative to support military families, called Joining Forces. Joining Forces aims to educate citizens, communities, businesses, faith-based institutions, government, and organizations about the challenges that military families face, as well as to inspire these sectors of society to support them. For more information about Joining Forces, please visit their website.
CIR is offering a continuing education course this spring on Families Impacted by Military Service. If you are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
