You can also help us reach our goal by donating new toys. Our greatest need is age appropriate toys for infants and teenage girls. Toy donations can be delivered to our Fort Campbell location at 7104 Hedgerow Court, Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Monetary donations can be made online or mailed to P.O. Box 2437 Fort Campbell, KY 42223.

Holiday House eases the holiday stress of Military Families who find themselves in need during the holiday season and may find providing a holiday gift for their children this season to be hardship by allowing each approved Military Family to “shop” for one toy and one book per child and one game for the Family at our Holiday House location.

About Operation Homefront

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Operation Homefront was formed in February 2002. It was developed to support the families of deployed service members immediately following 9/11. Operation Homefront is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, and has evolved into a major nonprofit.

The organization currently provides services to military families across the nation with 23 chapters serving 32 states. The national office handles cases in states that do not have their own chapters. The target population is American military personnel and/or their families who have unmet needs due to financial hardship, death, injury, or physical or mental detriment as a result of service in Iraq or Afghanistan. These may include active duty, Reserve, National Guard and veteran service members.

Operation Homefront provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.
