ATLANTA — Operation Homefront announced that it has been overwhelmed by requests for emergency assistance by military families, and the nonprofit organization is requesting immediate donations from the local community to help address the need.
“We need everything from cash to help pay utility bills to groceries to businesses who can donate auto and household repair services,” said Kim Scofi, chapter president. “Even if you can only donate one time, we’re very grateful. Heaven knows these military families are stressed out by the sacrifices they have made and they deserve our help in return.”
Operation Homefront manages a wide variety of crises experienced by military families, especially when the service member is deployed.
Most recently, the organization provided urgent financial assistance for a young family who’s dealing with their third deployment. After emergency car repairs and an ill relative, this family was without a nest egg to fall back on.
They contacted Operation Homefront on a Monday to ask for help as their power was about to be disconnected and they had received an eviction notice as well. The organization was able to respond immediately and help this family stay warm and maintain a roof over their heads.
Operation Homefront needs is requesting the public’s continued generosity to prepare for the long and cold winter ahead. For more information, visit or contact Scofi at (678) 596-1718 or by email at
