Saint Germain Catering to Donate $1 to Operation Homefront For Every Catering Order

Saint Germain Catering is partnering with Operation Homefront to help bring armed forces and their families aid.

In recognition of the upcoming festive season, Saint Germain Catering is announcing its support for Operation Homefront, a charity that helps service members and their families with food, repairs and help. For every catering order a customer places with Saint Germain Catering, it will donate $1 to the charity, and it will also assist with supplying proteins to those in need.

Operation Homefront offers substantial assistance to members of the military, their spouses and their children to help build strong, stable and secure military families. It divides its assistance into three categories: short-term, long-term and recurring support.

Its most critical assistance normally comprises food, utilities and rent, and in 2015, it supported 2,360 military families and fulfilled 5,986 emergency financial assistance requests. In addition, it placed 111 service members and 289 family members into rent-free transitional housing, including 206 children.

As part of its long-term support plan, it placed 92 families in mortgage-free homes to help save them $22.8 million in mortgage costs, and it supported 2,931 Hearts of Valor caregivers across 50 support groups.

Finally, it provided toys to 32,906 military children, provided 13,641 military family meals and helped 33,454 military children with school supplies. It also helped 52,533 people through a variety of other programs and services. With 92 percent of all funding going toward programs to help military families, it has had a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for the past nine years and holds an A rating from CharityWatch.

Deciding to partner with Operation Homefront was simple for Saint Germain Catering founder Mina Ebrahimi: "One of the core guiding principles behind Operation Homefront is to do what's right, and what we feel is right is to give back to those who have protected us over the years. That's why we're proud to support Operation Homefront in recognition of the sacrifice that so many have made and continue to make even when they've come home."

Operation Homefront provides support across the United States, and it relies on donations from individuals and companies just like Saint Germain Catering to ensure it can carry on operating and supporting our military. With more than 117,000 active and reserve military personnel in Virginia alone, this organization makes a crucial impact on the lives of countless military members across the state.

Operation Homefront was founded in 2002 after the tragic events of 9/11, and is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. It typically supports those who are E-1 through E-6, the lowest-paid enlisted ranks, although all ranks are eligible for support depending on circumstances. It also presents the prestigious Military Child of the Year Award, which honors children of service members across all five services who have shown excellence, leadership and heart.
