Founded in 2002, Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit serving America’s military families. Recognized for superior performance by leading independent charity oversight groups, 92 percent of Operation Homefront expenditures go directly to programs that support tens of thousands of military families each year. Operation Homefront provides critical financial assistance, transitional and permanent housing and family support services to prevent short-term needs from turning into chronic, long-term struggles. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and partners, and the support from thousands of volunteers, Operation Homefront proudly serves veterans and military families across the country.
Operation Homefront has a local field office in Brentwood serving all of Tennessee and Kentucky. Within the last 12 months, Operation Homefront has given away 1,000 backpacks with school supplies to our military and veteran families in Middle Tennessee and helped hit a national milestone of giving away 375,000 backpacks with school supplies. Operation Homefront also partnered with the Nashville Predators Foundation to host a Star-Spangled Baby Shower to support five expectant military moms. The event was also featured on a segment of CMT’s Homefront Heroes highlighting the program and mission of Operation Homefront. We also recently hosted a Homefront Celebration event at the Wildhorse Saloon, which honored 68 military spouses.
Operation Homefront’s mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive — not simply struggle to get by — in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.
Our vision is to be the provider of choice for short-term and critical financial assistance, long-term stability and recurring support programs to military families.
What Would You Do with $5,000 and a Day of Service?
The $5,000 would be used to support our Back-to-School Brigade in 2020. The funding would provide critical school supplies and backpacks to hundreds of military and veteran families in Middle Tennessee. The Day of Service would be a wonderful way for Regions employees to help sort and stuff the school supplies in the backpacks. Preparing for the Back-to-School Brigade event takes several hours and manpower to set up, and the volunteer efforts would provide much-needed assistance to help us best serve our military families.
