Operation Homefront is now working to make back-to-school supplies available to military families through their Back to School Brigade campaign. They are accomplishing this through events held either on base or, for states without a large active duty military presence, through events held throughout the state.
To participate, visit www.operationhomefront.net and find an event nearest to your location. From that point you will have to register for the event, which means registering for the website. Registering for the website does include some basic, and not-so-basic, information about the military member, such as their pay grade and command. The site also asks for the soldier’s last four digits of their social security number.
After you have registered for both the website and the closest Back to School Brigade event, you should receive a confirmation email giving you more information about the event.
If you know of any other school supplies events going on please leave a comment below.
