School Supplies for Your Kids from Operation Homefront

I was contacted by Operation Homefront and they have an over supply of school supplies in the Portland area. They would really like to see these get into the hands of our families before they give them out to other charities.

Please contact the OH office and talk with Kathleen if you are wanting some of these supplies for your families. Thinking ahead these also make great stocking stuffer for the holiday parties and kids give aways at the Unit picnic's School supplies are always needed by families year round. - OH # 541-981-2186
