Volunteers on Wednesday handed out 400 backpacks filled with school supplies to students from families of soldiers who suffered wounds stemming from 9/11, and ill or injured service members of any rank, active duty, guard or reserves.

The give-away at Hill Field Elementary School in Clearfield was part of Operation Homefront’s annual Back-to-School Brigade!

According to the Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit dedicated to building strong, stable and secure military families, more than 400,000 backpacks have been distributed to military children, saving military families nearly $50 million in school expenses.
