Your View: School supplies sought for ‘military’ kids

Operation Homefront is working with Bank of America to make clothing donations to kids of military families. As part of Operation Homefront’s annual “Back to School Brigade” drive, people can donate clothes and school supplies at any of the 73 Bank of America branches in San Diego County during the month of July.

Plainly marked “Back To School Brigade” collection bins will be located in banking center lobbies.

The program serves 2,800 children of military servicemen and women throughout Southern California at 10 locations as a way to thank the children of the military that sacrifice so much while their parents are deployed. The “Back To School Brigade” program collects supplies that are not provided in schools, such as backpacks, pencil cases, pencils, pens, folders and binders. These items are then disseminated by the local Operation Homefront organization.
