Operation Enduring Freedom — Troop Assistance Project — Flags for Freedom

  • Beginning in April 2003 the Foundation began the “Flags for Freedom” fundraiser to recognize and benefit DC employees who were serving in the armed forces.

  • We raised $66,723 that has been and will continue to be used to recognize and support the families of our 550 deployed employees/troops.

  • In 2004 and 2005, the Foundation provided phone cards for the families of DC troops. In 2006, the Foundation provided VISA gift cards to those families.
