Customers can bring holiday joy to thousands of military kids.

Operation Homefront and Seattle area Dollar Tree stores are partnering to make holidays brighter for military families with Operation Homefront’s annual holiday toy drive. For the eleventh straight year, Dollar Tree customers can buy toys for military children, easing the financial burden of the holidays on military families.

Dollar Tree stores will have collection boxes available for customers to put their purchased toys. Operation Homefront volunteers will deliver the toys at holiday events across the country and through on-base family readiness groups. Dollar Tree and its customers have been working together to provide toys for military families since 2006.

“On behalf of the entire Operation Homefront family, I want to thank Dollar Tree and its customers for continuing their generous support for our Holiday Toy Drive program,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., president & CEO of Operation Homefront.

“Over the course of the past 11 years, we have made a real difference, with millions of goods going to support our military families. Our work together over this holiday season continues to demonstrate our collective appreciation for their exceptional service and the importance of our efforts to help this very special group of our fellow Americans thrive in the communities they have worked so hard to protect,” Pray added. also accepts online contributions for all of Operation Homefront’s programs to build strong, stable, and secure military families.

There are three Dollar Tree stores in Kent:

  • 10432 SE Kent-Kangley Rd.
  • 20618 108th Ave. SE
