Local military families received a bundle of school supplies Saturday morning to help with their back-to-school needs.
Operation Homefront Southeast distributed free back packs and school supplies for military children in Fort Rucker.
The items were for lower and mid-grade ranking military families.
"We always look forward to this event. I actually several years prior, volunteered here so I understand how well this helps out families," says Cindy Ballagh.
Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit organization that provides emergency and financial assistance to families of service members and wounded warriors.
