It's a group effort - one that makes sure military families are able to send their children to school with everything they need.

Operation Homefront teams up with the Dollar Tree before the school year to fill backpacks with much-needed school supplies for military children.

Now, the Blue Star Mothers are handing out those backpacks ahead of the school year.

If you're part of a military family, all you have to do to outfit your child is click the link below.

Your children’s names are not required - only the number of children and their grades.

The Blue Star Moms will make arrangements to either have you pick up
your backpack or they'll have them delivered.
