Purple Up - MOMC

 

In 2011, the University of New Hampshire 4-H started the “Purple Up! For Military Kids” initiative and is now celebrated nation-wide.  Wearing the color purple is a visible way to show support and thank military youth for their courage and sacrifices.

The color purple was chosen and symbolizes all branches of the military, it is a combination of Army green, Marine Corps scarlet, and Coast Guard, Air Force, and Navy blue.

The goal of “Purple Up! For Military Kids” is for military youth to SEE the support of their schools, after school programs, youth groups, Child Development Centers, Family Child Care Homes and the entire community. This year “Purple Up! For Military Kids” will officially be celebrated on 3 April 23.
