In Her Boots - Female Veterans Initiative

ABOUT THE PROJECT

KVCR was awarded a $5,000 grant that will be used to promote a new public television documentary which KVCR will broadcast on Tuesday, November 11 at 8:00pm.

KVCR will offer a screening opportunity to view a portion of the documentary Unsung Heroes: The Story of America’s Female Patriots which is an inspirational saga of unrecognized courage and sacrifice that touches every community in the nation. It’s focus is the many women that served their country.

Every woman that has ever served in the U.S. Military has volunteered to do so.  Today, more women serve our country than at any time in history.

As part of The KVCR Veterans’ Initiative, “In Her Boots” is a project to create awareness of the issues female veterans face. Combat boots will be decorated by female veterans to signify their time in the military. Let female veterans know they are a valuable resource in our community and give them thanks for their service.

KVCR invites you to support this project by donating a pair of boots. Our goal is to collect 50 pairs of boots. In partnership with the VA hospital we plan to host a day to honor female veterans with the activity of gathering together and decorating the boots.

We hope to meet as many of the female veterans as possible from throughout the Inland Empire and thank them for their service. We are hoping to put the boot on display as part of a traveling exhibit honoring women and their contributions to our country.

The screening of Unsung Heroes: The Story of America’s Female Patriots will be held at KVCR in the television studio on Friday, November 7 at 6:30pm. KVCR will invite our sponsors and veterans from a variety of organizations. KVCR will provide popcorn for the “movie” and a goodie bag for all veterans. Space is limited if you would like to attend the screening please RSVP to Lindsey Wisegarver at lwisegarver@kvcr.org or by calling her at 909-384-8599.
