The holidays are a joyous time for many, but can be a very difficult time for some. Whether you're looking to get in the spirit of generosity this season or simply stumbled upon this post during your daily blog-checking routine, I'd like to call to your attention a great need that exists. Operation Homefront, a local organization that rallies support for military families, would like the public to know about an opportunity to bring joy to the families of our troops.
Operation Homefront provides aid to military families struggling not only with emergencies, but also with the problems of everyday life. Existing programs include providing food, baby care items, vehicle donations and repairs, financial assistance, furniture donations, moving assistance, holiday baskets, back-to-school supplies, and an online magazine, among other things.
Support our military families this season by contributing to Operation Homefront Southern California. A non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance and morale to the troops, to the families they leave behind, and to wounded warriors when they return home.
You can sponsor a family for $35 and provide a holiday meal and toys. O.H. is always looking for volunteers and have a number of opportunities to help in our community donations programs.
