ABOUT THE BACK-TO-SCHOOL BRIGADE
Operation Homefront begins their eleventh season of Back-to-School Brigade™, a nationwide school supply collection campaign. Operation Homefront is happy to announce the start of their Back-to-School Brigade where they provide backpacks and free school supplies to military families. There are over 50 locations for official events. Last year, Operation Homefront distributed more than 25,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to military kids across the country. Dollar Tree joins them again as their presenting sponsor for the eighth year by setting out collection barrels July 5 through August 11 at over 5,000 Dollar Tree and Deals stores.
