It’s All About The Children
Operation Homefront, the national non-profit that provides emergency financial and other assistance to military families and Wounded Warriors, has announced it's annual Back-to-School Brigade program to collect school supplies for military kids. Operation Homefront, and its organizations and volunteers, across the nation will begin collecting donated school supplies, along with monetary donations, that they will distribute to the children of service members at the beginning of the school year in the fall. This year marks the 6th annual campaign by Operation Homefront to give children of military families the opportunity to start school with all the supplies they need to be successful. Down in Great Falls, Dollar Tree stores are stepping up to the plate and doing their part to be active with this program. Locations include the Dollar Tree store at the Westwood Mall on the Northwest bypass and at 1017 10th Avenue South. By purchasing you school supplies at the Dollar Tree stores, you are helping out our country's youngest heroes. Jim Knotts, who's President and CEO of Operation Homefront, says "people in the community who want to say "thank you" to military families can make a real contribution by being part of the Back-to-School Brigade program. It is "all about the children".
