As part of its “Thanks for Giving” program, Outback has donated over $2,000,000 over the past two years in support of our troops and families.
The support through Operation Homefront continues in 2012 with local promotions in select restaurants around the country, and adds the integration with Outback Steakhouse Racing.
“We’re honored to continue our support of military families through our partnership with Outback Steakhouse,” said Jim Knotts, Operation Homefront’s chief executive officer. “The commitment of the company and its patrons has made a difference in the lives of thousands of our service members. The additional integration with their racing team is one more way for Outback to connect with those who defend our freedom.”
Knotts continued, “We wish Ryan Newman and the team great success on the track this year. Noting Ryan’s support of the Army too, it is especially meaningful to be a part of his team as we support our nation’s Soldiers and their families.”
Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit with 23 local chapters, provides emergency assistance – including food aid, rent and mortgage assistance, and help with car repairs – to active-duty service members of all branches.
