Operation Homefront Partners with Cincinnati Area Dollar Tree Stores for Back-To-School Brigade to Benefit Military Children
Cincinnati, Ohio– Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR) have joined forces again this year to gather school supplies for military children across the country. The supplies can be purchased starting today by customers at Dollar Tree locations in the Cincinnati area as well as the more than 5,000 Dollar Tree and Deals stores nationwide and placed in collection boxes in each store.
The Back-to-School Brigade program is a nationwide campaign by Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree. This is the seventh year that Dollar Tree has partnered with Operation Homefront for the program. Last year, Dollar Tree patrons donated more than $5 million of supplies.
"The school supplies donated by Dollar Tree customers are an essential part of our family support program to help prepare military kids for the school year,” said Sherri Beck, Director of Programs for Operation Homefront’s Central Great Lakes Field Office. “Our terrific partnership with Dollar Tree – now in our seventh year – really helps ease the financial burden that the back-to-school season can bring."
“Dollar Tree is a proud, national sponsor of Back-to-School BrigadeTM,” said Chelle Davis, Dollar Tree spokesperson. “We are honored to once again partner with Operation Homefront and thank our customers for their continued generosity and support.”
To contribute to Operation Homefront’s Back-to-School BrigadeTM visit any Dollar Tree location including those on Vine Street, Madison Avenue, Springfield Pike, or Colerain Avenue.
Dollar Tree stores will collect supplies July 6 – August 13. Once the collection period concludes, Operation Homefront will distribute the supplies to military children during the back-to-school season in August and September.
