Operation Homefront of Pacific Northwest will hold a Back-to-School Brigade event on August 17th 2013 where free backpacks full of school supplies will be given to military kids. The event will be held at Golden Services from 11am to 4pm. Military parents wishing to bring their children to the event to receive free school supplies should register online at www.operationhomefront.net
“Military families deal not only with deployments and the other stresses of military life, but also the economic difficulties shared by all Americans,” said Kari McClellan, Executive Director of Operation Homefront’s Pacific Northwest 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 were donated by people from around the Lakewood/Tacoma area and collected at local Dollar Tree stores as part of Operation Homefront’s nationwide Back-to-School Brigade program.
