November 30, 2011 - Clarkston Junior High School students were still helping load the U.S. Army HEMTT (Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck) when another few boxes were dropped of for Operation Homefront.
The second hour Advanced International Baccalaureate class ran a food drive for the organization.
Operation Homefront assists military families during difficult financial times by providing food and gift certificates to grocery stores.
Christine Rogers, Clarkston Community Schools' Academic Service Learning liaison, was amazed by the outpouring support from the community as well as the students.
