Military Family HOLIDAY Support
Hello Military Families! NTPS is looking to improve how we communicate information and resources to our military-connected families. The Military Support Team partners with our local community to give our military families additional FREE resources. Operation Military Backpack, A Hero's Promise, Holiday Support, Graduation Support, are just of some of the wonderful resources that we offer. So, if you are an NTPS Military-connected family, which means you currently serve or have served, and are interested in receiving communications about events, activities, information, and resources throughout the year, we ask that you take a moment and complete this form. Thank you.
