Operation Homefront hosts open house

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Operation Homefront is hosting an open house of its new field office in Miramar that will help the organization better serve San Diego's military community.

The new facilities are located in the 8300 block of Miramar Mall.

Operation Homefront provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of active duty service members and wounded warriors.

The new field office features a huge warehouse that makes it easier for the organization to accept donations of food and other supplies.

"Before, we couldn't take in large donations and we couldn't have people come receive them from us. But now, we have military commands come in here by the tens and twenties and thirties to be able to get these items and distribute them out to the military units," Director of Programs Tricia Delapaz said.
