Family Readiness Group, Casino Night
The Family Readiness Group (FGR) supports the troops and families of members of the NJ National Guard – roughly 300 soldiers in NJ. The group is part of the 102nd Cavalry. FGR's primary mission is to support the families, especially as their soldiers get deployed and are away from home for months. Recent deployments found our service personnel in Somalia and Jordan and, before that, were in far-off locations as embedded in the Gulf War. Empowers made a $5,500 donation to "give back" to those who give so much to enjoy our freedoms in the US.
Casino Night is the most incredible opportunity in New Jersey to connect communities to our service members and veterans. While it’s a great party and a night of laughter, fun, and games, it’s also one of connection. Tying the hearts of community members to those that serve and their families is vital to our national identity and the foundations of American Democracy.
Empowers proudly supports the men & women of the New Jersey National Guard. Thank you for protecting our freedom and security.
