Operation Homefront Back to School Brigade

It’s that wonderful time of the year again where Military children of Deployed, Wounded, and Active Duty Service Members of any rank and Activated and Inactivated National Guard or Reserve Members can get FREE School supplies!

Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree have teamed up to give these children completely FREE backpack, supplies and more! Isn’t that amazing?!

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go here and click on your location
  2. Then click “Go to their Website”
  3. You should see a box (like the image above) which says “Register Now for Back to School Brigade”
  4. Click that and register

Remember, you can also donate supplies at any Dollar Tree! Check out my other BACK TO SCHOOL deals here (there are a ton of great deals you could donate, like $2.99 backpacks from Walgreens!).

Last year, Operation Homefront was able to collect almost 5 million school supplies and filled almost 40,000 backpacks with these school supplies, saving military families across the nation thousands of dollars in expenses many cannot otherwise afford. 


Thanks, My Military Mommy
