Children of military families eligible for camp scholarships

The American Red Cross of Hancock, Seneca and Wyandot Counties’ Armed Forces Family Network is offering summer camp scholarships to children of military personnel.
The camps are offered by Operation: Military Kids and include Troop and Family camps, designed for families to spend a week together strengthening ties and building camaraderie with other military families; Hero camps, which help Ohio’s military children become more resilient and prepared to manage the stresses of growing up in a military family; and a residential camp at Kelleys Island, where military youth from across the state participate in community service with others who share similar experiences.
Scholarship applications are available at www.redcross.org/hancock and at the Red Cross offices in Findlay, Tiffin and Upper Sandusky. The deadline to apply is Feb. 7.
Funding for the scholarships is part of a grant provided by the Handbags That Help giving circle.
