As the summer months come to an end, we enter the beginning of our main school supplies distribution season. This month began with a distribution event at Milan National Guard Armory, located in Milan, IL near the Iowa border. Back 2 School Illinois provided 100 kits to the families of military veterans through our community distribution partner, Operation Homefront. This is the first in a number of distributions scheduled with Operation Homefront through August.
We were greeted with smiling faces and good vibes as we arrived at the Armory in Milan for the distribution. When we get to see the results of our work at events such as this we are reminded of the importance of our mission.
