“Operation Homefront’s mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so that they thrive – not struggle to get by – in the communities they’ve worked so hard to protect,” Operation Homefront COO and retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert Thomas said. “We are very proud to work with SAS to help accomplish our mission by providing free holiday meals to military families in Texas...Every meal eases holiday spending for our most junior military families, and we hope every meal makes the holiday all the more special for them. We always look forward to working with SAS on our Holiday Meals for Military program. We couldn’t ask for a better corporate partner.”
“We recognize that as a community we have a responsibility to give back to the military families who sacrifice so much for our daily freedoms. SAS is grateful for the dedication our service members provide to our community and our country. For this reason, SAS is honored to partner with Operation Homefront,” says SAS CEO, Nancy Richardson.
