Dollar Tree partners with Operation Homefront to support military families for Christmas

Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree Inc. will once again join forces this year to make the holidays brighter for military families with the nonprofit’s Holiday Toy Drive. For the 11th consecutive year, Dollar Tree customers can purchase toys for military kids, easing the financial burdens that often accompany the holiday season for junior- and midgrade (E1-E6) service members and their families.

Dollar Tree stores will have collection boxes available in which shoppers place their purchased toys, knowing they will be delivered to the children of the men and women in uniform. Operation Homefront volunteers collect the toys to be distributed at the nonprofit’s holiday events across the country and through on-base Family Readiness Groups.

Online contributions for all of Operation Homefront’s programs are also accepted at
