Shermaine Perry-Knights has given military families a true gift through the pages of her awesome children’s book series, I Move A Lot and That’s Okay! The book series goes through all of the stages of a Permanent Change of Station (PCS)- a move between one duty station and another. For a child, this can be difficult as you have to pick up and move from your home to a whole new place. Sometimes within the United States and other times, across the world. In her book, she provides relatable, detailed descriptions of this process through sweet stories about military kids experiencing a PCS.

What can already be a stressful time for military households in the midst of relocating to new duty stations across the USA and world has been rudely interrupted during this time of social-distancing. During this 2020 PCS Season, military lives are in major flux and plans have been placed on hold. But thanks to MILLIE and Lowe’s Home Improvement, PCS woes are about to get a little bit easier. In April 2020, Lowe’s announced it would contribute a $170 million community commitment toward the COVID-19 pandemic relief efforts by supporting their associates, hiring more team members, and giving back to their communities.
