Operation Homefront of Southeast will hold a Back-to-School Brigade event August 7, 2014 where free backpacks full of school supplies will be given to military kids. Military parents wishing to bring their children to the event to receive free school supplies should arrive early, as the event is first come, first served.
“Military families deal not only with deployments and the other stresses of military life, but also the economic difficulties shared by all Americans,” said Simone Hoover, Executive Director of Operation Homefront’s Southeast Field Office. “These donated school supplies enhance the morale and the success of our military children, while easing the burden military families carry.”
The school supplies will be donated by people from around Pensacola, Florida and collected at local Dollar Tree stores as part of Operation Homefront’s nationwide Back-to-School Brigade program.
