Operation Homefront Launches 2012 Back-to-School Brigade
Operation Homefront is excited to launch the 2012 Back-to-School Brigade, our program that provides school supplies to military kids. Through distribution events around the country, military families are given supplies to help them get ready for the upcoming school year.
Today, the context of military service includes a higher operation tempo, increased deployments, relocations, and family separations. In short, military families are facing more stress than ever before. This program can relieve some of the financial stress and the expense of having to get ready for school in the middle of PCSing, financial struggles or being short-handed because one parent may be deployed. At the events, kids receive a free backpack and enough school supplies to get them started on their first day of school.
We hope you will consider supporting our back to school program this year. Here are ways you can help:
