Kudos: school supply drive supporters

The Operation Home Front back to school supplies program for military children was once again a huge success. The communities of Nevada and Placer counties, along with the American Legion Post 130 / Auxiliary of Grass Valley collected over 8,200 of these supplies purchased at the Dollar Tree Stores. They were then transported to Beale Air Force Base and on Aug. 11 were handed out to over 300 military children attending their Back to School Fashion show and backpack give away. Our men and women in uniform express a big “thank you.”
