Dollar General and 3M Donate 1,000 Military Packages to Operation Homefront
Military families at Fort Campbell will have a welcome home surprise thanks to a partnership with Dollar General, 3M and Operation Homefront.
Last week, more than 30 volunteers from Dollar General’s Store Support Center in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, assembled 1,000 “welcome home” kits, which Operation Homefront delivered to Fort Campbell. Each kit will be placed in the home of military families at Fort Campbell and contains more than $60 worth of 3M household products and product coupons, as well as a $10 Dollar General gift card.
“Dollar General is proud to be a longstanding supporter of the military community, and we are grateful for the opportunity to provide welcome home kits for military families at Fort Campbell,” said Denine Torr, Dollar General’s senior director of community initiatives. “Our mission is Serving Others, and we look forward to supporting these military families through our partnership with 3M and Operation Homefront.”
Dollar General demonstrates its commitment to active military members, veterans and their families through exclusive discounts, community outreach with its military employee resource group and the founding of Paychecks for Patriots, an initiative aimed at supporting service members’ transition to civilian life through meaningful employment opportunities, among others.
“We are very grateful to both Dollar General and 3M for partnering with us to serve America’s military families,” said Ebony Strange, Director of Corporate Partnerships at Operation Homefront. “In addition to providing home care kits to the families at Fort Campbell, Dollar General’s and 3M’s generous support will allow us to meet the needs of more military families across the country, and help them thrive in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.”
“We are excited to participate with both Dollar General and Operation Homefront in support of the military families at Fort Campbell,” said Pete Leacock, Scotch-Brite’s marketing communications manager. “The men and women who have served have done so much for us, it is our pleasure to give something in return to help welcome them and their families home.”
