See video here from Operation Homefront's Senior Director Peter M. Stinson on ways to assist local military families so they can best thrive: 

Stinson in the video talks about Back to School Brigade, a program designed to collect back to school backpacks  for our military children in Monmouth County. If you would like to donate a back pack to a local military child the local businesses accepting the backpacks from now through the end of July are: Colts Neck Dance and Performing Arts Academy, located on  410 State Route 34 in Colts Neck, and Title Boxing located in the Kohls Plaza in Holmdel. You may drop off a back pack donation at one of these locations during their regular business hours. Children and teen backpacks are needed. The backpacks should be new and empty. Note: Colts Neck Dance also provides in memory of James P. Ladley, a 50 percent discount to military families. This is ongoing and is 50 percent off of all tuition, classes, summer camps and special programs. 

Dennis Blazak, Community Plans & Liasion Officer for Naval Weapons Stations Earle (NWSE) thanked Peter Stinson for attending the event and spoke about the mission of NWSE and the 75th Anniversary of Earle celebrated this year.
