Operation Homefront-South Carolina is distributing 100 backpacks stuffed full of supplies to area military children to help them get off to a great start for the new school year. Volunteers will hand out the backpacks Thursday, Aug. 13 from 3:00-6:00 at The Citadel.

It's part of Backpack Brigade, a program that collects donations of school supplies from generous supporters. Volunteers then stuff new backpacks and hand them out to kids from families primarily of ranks E-6 and below. South Carolina is one of 30 Operation Homefront chapters taking part.

"We deeply appreciate the generosity of all the people who've helped us with this project - our generous supporter, our selfless volunteers and the sponsors who've stepped up to make this a success," said Chapter President Shelton Milner. "Backpack Brigade is a critical part of our outreach to our families, and we're proud of its positive impact."
