Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree have joined forces again this pre-school season to gather school supplies for the Back-to-School Brigade for military children. The supplies can be purchased starting today by customers at any of the more than 60 Dollar Tree and Deals stores and placed in collection boxes in each store.
This is the sixth year that Dollar Tree has partnered with Operation Homefront for the program. Last year, Dollar Tree patrons donated more than $4.7 million of supplies nationwide.
“For the last six years, Dollar Tree and its customers have been our partners in getting military kids ready to go back to school,” said Charlotte Merriam, Executive Director of Operation Homefront Rocky Mountains. “These donated school supplies enhance the morale and the success of our military children, while easing the burden military families carry. These families deal with deployments and the other stresses of military life, and Operation Homefront serves lower- and mid-grade enlisted the lowest-paid of our service members.”
Dollar Tree stores are collecting supplies from now till August 14, 2014. Please click here to find a Dollar Tree location near you. Visit OperationHomefront.net for more details on how to contribute.
