On Sunday, Nov. 9, the Ducks host the group for the club’s contest vs. Florida at 5:05 p.m. at Honda Center. The military families will be recognized both in-arena and on the television broadcast that evening.
“Having the opportunity to work with an organization that supports such brave families is something we’re honored by,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke. “We are in great debt to these soldiers and their families for the service they’ve provided. This will be as special a day for our team as it is for theirs.”
About Operation Homefront
Operation Homefront is one of the country’s largest non-profit organizations dedicated to assisting military families, with over 30 locations across the United States. The agency was founded in 2002 in San Diego and focuses on a range of issues from home and auto repairs to urgent financial assistance and emotional support. Operation Homefront also operates CinC-House.com, the nation’s largest online community of military spouses and women in uniform.
Operation Homefront utilizes a network of volunteers working within the local chapters to provide critical support to our military families. Since its inception, Operation Homefront has come to the rescue of more than 45,000 clients nation-wide. Operation Homefront serves as a second family when service members are deployed and a family crisis occurs. They are the shoulder to lean on so that the service member can focus on the job at hand knowing that their family is well-cared for.
Operation Homefront works with military leadership to assist families who may not receive needed help otherwise. Over half of the clients are referred by local unit commanders, chaplains, military relief societies and military related non-profit support groups.
