ABOUT THE BACK-TO-SCHOOL BRIGADE
We are gearing up for another amazing season for Operation Homefront's annual Back-to-School Brigade™, our nationwide school supply collection campaign. Last year, we distributed more than 25,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to military kids across the country. Dollar Tree joins us again as our presenting sponsor for the eighth year by setting out collection barrels July 5 through August 11 at over 5,000 Dollar Tree and Deals stores.
GET INVOLVED AS A SUPPORTER
DISTRIBUTION EVENTS FOR MILITARY FAMILIES
Operation Homefront distribute backpacks and school supplies at official Operation Homefront events throughout the country.
Registration for 2017 is now open! Check out our Events page to see if there is a Back-to-School Brigade event in your area. If you don’t see an event, thanks to our partnership with Dollar Tree, free school supplies may be available through your local FRG or participating organization. Be sure to build and/or check your profile for new events. IMPORTANT: If you already have a registration profile built, please make sure all information is up-to-date, especially your child's grade, before you register.
Follow us on Facebook to learn when registration for this and other events open in your area.
