Plexus Worldwide, a Scottsdale-based direct-selling health and wellness company focused on health and happiness, has announced it donated $64,104.75 to Our Military Kids on Dec. 18.

The nonprofit organization supports kids of deployed National Guard, Reserve service members, and children of wounded warriors from all service branches by helping families to pay for youth activities such as youth sports participation leagues (i.e. soccer, baseball, arts camps, drama clubs, etc.).

The grants fund activities to help children cope with stress and anxiety while their parents are recovering or deployed.

“Plexus is proud to once again support Our Military Kids by donating a portion of our total sales from Veterans Day,” Alec Clark, president of Plexus Worldwide said in a prepared statement.

“When a parent’s deployment or battle injury brings stress to a child, it’s amazing what simple activities – like ballet or baseball – can do. We hope this donation will help those families who are struggling to deal with financial and emotional hardships.”

“Since 2004, Our Military Kids has positively impacted the lives of more than 50,000 children of military members throughout the United States by providing them with grants to stay active and participate in extracurricular activities,” Linda Davidson, co-founder and president for Our Military Kids, said in a prepared statement.

“We’re thankful for the partnership we have with Plexus Worldwide and their continuous donations, bringing hope for these children and their families year after year.”
