Throughout the year, Navy Federal is proud to support the efforts of Operation Homefront.  For Navy Federal employees, one of the most enjoyable efforts we participate in is Operation Homefront’s Back- to-School Brigade.

Through the hard work of our team mates and the generosity of our members, Navy Federal branches around the country were able to help young students become better prepared for the start of a new school year.

In Omaha, Nebraska; volunteers from Navy Federal helped stuff backpacks for a distribution event at Offutt Air Force Base.

34 branches across Southern California supported the Back-to-School Brigade by collecting donations at branches. Credit union employees and members donated backpacks and school supplies. According to Operation Homefront, more than $13,000 in school supplies and backpacks were collected at San Diego area branches.

And finally, in Washington State, Navy Federal branches in Lakewood and Bremerton supported the Back-to-School Brigade both through monetary donations and volunteerism.

All told, nearly 60 Navy Federal branches participated in this year’s event, collecting more than $20,000 worth of donations according to Operation Homefront.
