Giving: Back-to-School Brigade

31 07 2011

The school season is in full swing throughout stores.  Deals on classroom supplies are spread everywhere so I purchased on-sale school supplies in support of Operation Homefront’s Back-to-School Brigade.  The idea behind the Backpack Brigade is to provide school supplies for the children of servicemembers.  Often times one parent is deployed overseas and this task of purchasing school supplies can be a daunting one for the families at home.  This helps to eliminate any stress levels of the parents brought on by a deployment or helps to eliminate the financial burden of having to purchase school supplies during a time when funds are low.  I am happy to contribute to the Back-to-School Brigade!

I was able to find:

  • 4 glues – free
  • 2 pencil cases – $0.25 each
  • 1 pack pencils – free
  • 4 pack index cards – free
  • 1 pencil sharpener – free
  • 3 packs label – unused had on hand
  • 2 folders – $0.25 each
  • 1 pack crayons – unused had on hand
  • 1 pack pencil cap erasers – free
