KILLEEN — Operation Homefront held their annual Back-to-School Brigade Saturday where they handed out backpacks full of school supplies to children of military members.

This event has been held in the past years as a relief effort. Military families already have a lot of stress to deal with, and this was one way for Operation Homefront to step in and offer some assistance. “A lot of us are on tight budgets, so what this does is we’re able to offer a bit of relief at this time and they can go buy the school clothes, the sneakers and things like that. It’s a thank you to our military for what they’re doing , but also a relief,” said Rebekah Reyes program coordinator for Operation Homefront.
