Griffin Steinfeld - About Our Military Kids

Lacking a corporate sponsor, K&N Pro Series Rookie, Griffin Steinfeld's car carries the logo of Our Military Kids. Our Military Kids is a nation-wide charity which raises funds to provide things like special classes, trips and tutoring to the children of parents who are or have been deployed. 

“It’s a great program.” Steinfeld said. “It allows kids to do things they may not normally get to do. In some cases it gives them a chance to live their dream…kinda like what I’m doing in the race car.”

About Our Military Kids:
Our Military Kids was founded in 2004 to support children ages 3 to 18 of National Guard and Reserve families that often become financially stretched during a deployment. In 2006 the program expanded to include children of severely injured service members from all branches. The organization provides $500 grants for activities such as sports, fine arts, and tutoring programs that nurture and sustain children while a parent is serving our country overseas or recovering from injury. Our Military Kids is funded by corporations, foundations, private donors, and government grants.
