In honor of Month of the Military Child, Hunt Military Communities (HMC) and its non-profit organization, Hunt Heroes Foundation, announced the winners of this year’s “Hunt Little Heroes” program. Four dependent children of military service members were recognized for making a difference within their communities. Rhyannon Edwards sewed handmade masks to donate to hospitals, schools, and military members. Joseph Cobb spent last year sending life-size cutouts of himself providing “hugs” to those struggling with mental health throughout the pandemic. Harper Cude organized a fundraiser for Tripler Army Medical Center, donating money and new toys to the center. Dylan Frey was recognized for taking on increased responsibility around his house, taking care of his younger siblings.
“We are so honored to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of military children across our country,” said John Ehle, President of Hunt Military Communities and the Hunt Heroes Foundation. “During such a difficult time, we value this opportunity to recognize the special contributions of military children who are giving back to their communities.”
Each winner receives a monetary prize and selects a charity to receive a donation of equal value. This year’s Heroes are donating to the Rady Children’s Hospital Foundation, CASA of El Paso, HUGS Hawaii, and Shriners Hospital for Children.
