Operation Homefront seeking backpack donations

The California branch of national nonprofit Operation Homefront is accepting donations of new backpacks to meet the demands of its Back to School Brigade program, which starts in two weeks.

About 4,000 backpacks will be needed to fulfill the needs of the program serving military service members and their families. According to David Oates, chair of the Board of Advisors for Operation Homefront California, the group has around 3,000 backpacks on hand.

“School supplies for a family can take a big chunk out of their budget," Oates said, noting that he program is a way Californians can thank service members.

"We need the community’s help to make this happen," he added.

The organization's San Diego office is able to receive the backpack donations directly, while cash contributions can be made at OperationHomefront.net by specifying in the donation page's additional comments section that the money be directed to “California Back-to-School Brigade."

The Operation Homefront California headquarters is located at 8318 Miramar Mall in San Diego.
