Many of the children we serve have experienced or are currently experiencing the absence of a parent, and in some cases, the absence of both parents due to deployment. -Art Hasselbrink

MilitaryConnection.com, known as "The Go To Site", is proud to join forces with Homefront America for their upcoming Easter EggStravaganza. On Saturday, April 12th, 2014, Homefront America will host more than 300 military families at Zoomars in San Juan Capistrano. This annual event provides Easter memories for these deserving military families from Marine Corps Camp Pendleton and surrounding military communities.
There will be plenty of food for all attendees, and the children will be treated to activities such as egg coloring, face painting, pictures with the Easter Bunny, a petting zoo, Easter basket of goodies, and of course, an egg hunt.
"I have had the pleasure of working with Homefront America since 2006," said MilitaryConnection.com's CEO Debbie Gregory. She added "They are one of those great non-profit organizations that does amazing work for military families, spending all donated funds for the direct benefit of these families. I am proud to help this all-volunteer organization in any way I can."
Military Connection works with many non-profit organizations that meet the needs of active duty military, Veterans, Guard and Reserves, and their families and supporters. Ms. Gregory shared that part of what her company does is pair many of these non-profit groups with corporations looking to assist these organizations and increase their viability in the military/veteran community.
The Easter EggStravaganza is just one of Homefront America's many events. The organization offers year-round programs to help enhance the quality of life for military families, focusing on the emotional and social developmental needs of the children, especially during deployment separation.
"Many of the children we serve have experienced or are currently experiencing the absence of a parent, and in some cases, the absence of both parents due to deployment," according to Art Hasselbrink, a WWII and Korean War Seabee, and President/Co-Founder of Homefront America. "It is not uncommon to see six or more deployments since 09/11."
Homefront America works to honor those who willingly defend our freedoms, and to serve their families, especially the children, by providing quality, caring, and meaningful assistance year round.
