Operation Homefront Partners With Dollar Tree For Back To School Brigade(TM) To Benefit Military Children

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, July 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR) have joined forces again this pre-school season to gather school supplies for military children across the country.  The supplies can be purchased starting Tuesday by customers at the more than 4,000 Dollar Tree and Deal$ stores nationwide and placed in collection boxes in each store.

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

"For the last six years, Dollar Tree and its customers have been our partners in getting military kids ready to go back to school," said Jim Knotts, President & CEO of Operation Homefront. "Military families deal not only with deployments and the other stresses of military life, but also the economic difficulties shared by all Americans.  These donated school supplies enhance the morale and the success of our military children, while easing 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 TM and thank our customers for their continued generosity and support."

Dollar Tree stores will collect supplies July 9 – August 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.
