DISTRIBUTION EVENTS FOR MILITARY FAMILIES
Operation Homefront distributes backpacks and school supplies at official Operation Homefront events throughout the country.
Registration for 2019 will open in June! Keep an eye out on our Events page to see if where a Back-to-School Brigade event will be happening in your area. If you don’t see a local event this year, 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.
