GAH One of Five Joining Forces Winners
05/01/2012 by Administrator Account

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden kick off the Joining Forces anniversary events.


As one of the five winners of the White House’s Joining Forces Community Challenge, Give an Hour was invited to the White House for the initiative's one-year anniversary on April 11. First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden launched Joining Forces to support and honor America’s service members and their families. The initiative aims to educate, challenge, and spark action from all sectors of our society--citizens, communities, schools, nonprofits, faith-based institutions, philanthropic organizations, and government--to ensure military families have the support they have earned.

GAH's president, Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, and chief operating officer, Nancy St. Claire, attended the anniversary events, which included a reception hosted by Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, his wife, Ms. Deanie Dempsey, and Dr. Jill Biden in honor of Joining Forces Community Challenge finalists and winners on April 10, 2012 at the Pentagon.
