Purple Up for Military Kids

Del Mar’s Navy Federal Credit Union staff members wearing purple show their support for military families.

Navy Federal Credit Union in Del Mar wants to get the word out that April is the “Month of the Military Child” in which the children of military families are being honored for their heroism and sacrifice during deployment. It’s called “Purple Up for Military Kids” and the team at the Del Mar branch are asking everyone to show their support and wear purple on Friday, April 13.

At Navy Federal Credit Union sees the loved ones left behind during deployment and believes that the families of military men and women deserve to be recognized for the sacrifices they make. This began with The University of California participating in California Operation: Military Kids (OMK) as part of its 4-H Youth Development program in an effort to express their gratitude and appreciation for these children.

The color purple was selected because it represents all branches of the military: Army green, Navy blue, Marine red and Air Force blue. Please join Navy Federal in its support effort to spread the word about Operation: Military Kids and “Purple Up!” It’s as easy as telling your coworkers and friends to wear purple on April 13. You can even take a photo and post to the CA OMK Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/CAOMK or the Purple Up! event page at http://www.facebook.com/events/254124211334113.
