Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree Inc. have joined forces for the ninth year to collect school supplies for military children through the national nonprofitÕs Back-to-School Brigade¨. The supplies can be purchased by customers at Dollar Tree stores and placed in collection boxes in each store through August 10.
Operation Homefront will distribute the supplies to military children at more than 50 Back-to-School Brigade¨ expos and at numerous additional local community partner events across the nation in July and August. Since 2008, Operation HomefrontÕs Back-to-School Brigade¨ has distributed more than a quarter-million backpacksÑeach accompanied by school suppliesÑto military children. The national nonprofit will give away its 300,000th backpack this summer.
