Back 2 School Illinois (B2SI) and Operation Homefront will distribute hundreds of free school supply kits to underserved students from military families from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at the 182 Airlift Wing in Peoria, as part of the educational non-profit’s distribution program. 

B2SI’s initiative provides essential supplies and resources to children of active and reserve members of all branches of the U.S. armed forces, in an effort to meet the educational needs of those students.

B2SI runs the largest free school supplies program in the state and partners with community organizations, including Operation Homefront (since 2013) and the USO, to facilitate distribution events that deliver the materials directly to the children they serve.
