Grainger/ Operation Homefront Food Box Event

Sunday December 20th, Operation Homefront Florida teamed up with Grainger in Jacksonville to assemble and distribute 150 food boxes for military families in need this holiday season. With about 30 volunteers, we accomplished the task in no time. The food boxes were distributed to the local military bases including Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Mayport Naval Station, Camp Blanding, and the Air National Guard Base. Special thanks to Grainger for their generosity and donation to Operation Homefront, making the project possible. Thanks to the Florida National Guard 146 Signal Batallion for letting us utilize their armory for the project. Thanks to everyone for volunteering and making a difference for our military families!!!

Operation Homefront Florida Holiday Impact

Across the state of Florida, Operation Homefront-Florida finds ways to give back this holiday season. In cooperation with Dollar Tree stores, Operation Homefront is distributing thousands of toys to military children. In the Tampa Bay area, local Director of Operations Jeff Gareau oversaw the distribution of 200 Thanksgiving dinners. In the Miami Dade area, volunteer Jenn Crawford facilitated Wal Mart's sponsorship of numerous military families in need. The "adopt a family" program has also experienced tremendous support from generous businesses around the state.

While thousands of US military personnel spend their holiday season far from home, Operation Homefront is proud to have the privilege of providing special morale events and support programs for their families here at home. Although this time of year can be stressful and never fails to keep each of us busy, it is perfect occasion to show our thanks to those who have volunteered to sacrifice their time with their families to protect our freedom around the world.

Touchdown for the Troops

Operation Homefront-Florida's first Touchdown for the Troops in Jacksonville Florida was a great success. 11 former NFL players coached 150 Jacksonville kids in a free football clinic at Bolles School.
