ABOUT THE BACK-TO-SCHOOL BRIGADE
Operation Homefront begins our annual Back-to-School Brigade™, a nationwide school supply collection campaign. Dollar Tree will continue their role as our presenting sponsor for the seventh year by setting out collection barrels July 6 through August 13 at over 5,000 Dollar Tree and Deals stores.
