Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree will once again join forces this year to make the holidays brighter for military families with the nonprofit’s Holiday Toy Drive.
For the 11th consecutive year, Dollar Tree customers can purchase toys for military kids, easing the financial burdens that often accompany the holiday season for junior- and mid-grade (E1-E6) service members and their families. Dollar Tree has a store at 363 Strander Blvd., in Tukwila.
Stores will have collection boxes available in which shoppers place their purchased toys. Operation Homefront volunteers collect these toys to be distributed at the nonprofit’s holiday events across the country and through on-base Family Readiness Groups.
“On behalf of the entire Operation Homefront family, I want to thank Dollar Tree and its customers for continuing their generous support for our Holiday Toy Drive program,” said retired Brig. Gen. John I. Pray Jr., president & CEO of Operation Homefront. “Over the course of the past 11 years, we have made a real difference, with millions of goods going to support our military families.”
