Support Military Personnel Fund


On January 19th, 2018 at midnight the US government shut down. This shutdown affects many populations, but most notably the impact on troops and civilian personnel who work in operations that are considered essential is pronounced. Military personnel are required to work without pay during the government shutdown, even though they have bills to pay and families to feed. Bright Funds has established the Support Military Personnel Fund, in solidarity with the people who work hard to protect our country.
