HONOLULU — Military families may register online now to receive free school supplies from Operation Homefront Hawaii’s Back-to-School Brigade. Thanks to a generous donation from Helping Hands Hawaii, hundreds of back-to-school school supplies kits will be distributed to military families from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Friday, July 22, near Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.  But families must register at www.operationhomefront.net/event/list prior to the event in order to reserve a package of back-to-school supplies.

Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit that builds strong, stable, and secure military families.

The Back-to-School Brigade event takes place as part of Operation Homefront’s 1Military1Family campaign throughout the month of July. Operation Homefront knows that every community is only as strong as the people and families who live there. That’s why we provide a variety of programs and services that help military families feel more connected to people and businesses in their community. Americans wishing to show their support for our military families can learn more at OperationHomefront.net/1Mil1Fam, and join in online with the hashtag #1Mil1Fam.
