The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation visited Patriot Point for its staff retreat this past weekend. Children of Fallen Patriots is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation’s vision is to ensure that every child of a fallen patriot receives all necessary college funding.
“Our weekend at Patriot Point was one for the books,” said Dee Hauschel-Muniz, the foundation’s scholarship administrator. “As a team we were able to bond and grow closer than before in such an amazing and healing atmosphere. It was a great reminder that our father’s legacy is still alive. We cannot thank you all enough for working so hard to honor their memory through caring for their families.
“Through organizations like Patriot Point and Fallen Patriots we can make sure the children of fallen heroes never feel left behind. We enjoyed hanging out on the beach playing sports, swimming, kayaking/paddle boarding, and a bonfire at the end of the day. It was so nice meeting the staff on site they were so nice and made sure we were all comfortable through our stay! Cannot recommend you all enough.”
The staff gathered at Patriot Point to enjoy the outdoor recreational opportunities available and to bond together while they strategically planned for the future.
“Patriot Point is such a special place,” staff member Kylie said. “Our Children of Fallen Patriot’s Scholarship Team thoroughly enjoyed the time that we were able to spend together – we cooked together, ate together, swam in the bay, kayaked, enjoyed watching Live PD, and played boardgames together. It was overall a relaxing weekend with great memories made!”
