Families Brave 100 Degree Heat to Get School Supplies

Our Armed Forces are trained to deal with difficult and often life threatening situations. So, it’s no surprise that triple digit temperatures didn’t keep the Scott Air Force Base military families for coming out to get our Back 2 School kits so their children would go back into the classroom this fall with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom.

In addition to getting school supplies, families were treated to a fun lunch of hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chips, soda, and sweet treats. A number of organizations were on hand, to offer
to a variety of services; services that make the challenging life of serving in the military, a lot easier.

The Scott Air Force Base kit distribution is the largest of our summer Operation Homefront events. We distributed 600 kits to families in just a few hours. There are seven other distributions scheduled in the next two months. 2017 represents another year of growth for our support of the men and women that protect our country.
