SAN ANTONIO, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree, Inc.

The Back to School Brigade program is a nationwide campaign by Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree, now in its sixth season.  Last year, more than $3 million of supplies were collected thanks to the generosity of Dollar Tree patrons nationwide.

"For the last six years, Dollar Tree and its customers have helped our communities' service members," said Jim Knotts, President  & CEO of Operation Homefront. "Military families are not only dealing with the effects of the war, but also the current economic difficulties. These issues put a lot of weight on them as they try to rebuild their lives. These donated school supplies enhance the morale and the success of our military children, while removing some of the burden military families carry."

"Dollar Tree is a proud, national sponsor of Operation Homefront," said Chelle Davis, Dollar Tree spokesperson.  "We are honored to once again participate in the Back to School Brigade™ and thank our customers for their continued generosity and support."

Dollar Tree stores will collect supplies July 9August 5.  Once the program ends, Operation Homefront volunteers will collect and distribute the gifts to military children during the back-to-school season in August and September.  Log on to OperationHomefront.net for more details on how to contribute.
