Beloved “Sesame Street” characters Elmo, Abby and others are featured in new videos aimed at helping military families feel more connected to one another and their community.
Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind “Sesame Street,” is launching the videos, which focus on themes such as how to turn a routine errand into special family time, how important community support is for single parents and how making a small effort to participate in community events can be meaningful.
“Feeling isolated can happen to anyone, but this is especially true for our military families,” Jeanette Betancourt, a Sesame Workshop executive, said in a statement Thursday. “We’re proud to support our military and their families with new resources in the times they need us most.”
The videos are free and available in English and Spanish at sesamestreetformilitaryfamilies.org.
