Helping military families

Volunteers with Operation Homefront and Food Lion teamed up to give away food packages, cans of popcorn and other Easter-related items for free to 100 military families Friday at Praise Assembly. A larger than life Easter Bunny waves to the children in the respective vehicles. Food Lion also made a $20,000 donation to help further the organization’s mission to build strong, stable, and secure military families. Since 2010, Operation Homefront has provided more than 145,000 meals to military and veteran families through its Holiday Meals for Military program. The program offers junior- and mid-grade enlisted families, who are often far from loved ones, with all the grocery items necessary to prepare a traditional family meal. Photo by Bob Sofaly.
