Back-to-School Brigade® is Operation Homefront's annual nationwide school supply collection and distribution campaign. Last year, we distributed more than 41,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to military kids across the country.
Once again, Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree Inc. have joined forces for the 10th consecutive year to collect and distribute school supplies for military children. Today through August 9, supplies purchased by Dollar Tree customers nationwide may be donated to Operation Homefront at collection boxes at more than 6,000 participating stores. Operation Homefront volunteers will collect the supplies and distribute them to military families at more than 60 Back-to-School Brigade® events and through local community partners across the nation this summer.
