Operation Homefront Receives National Recognition for Impact and Innovation Campaigns

SAN ANTONIO, TX- Operation Homefront, a nonprofit whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families, has recently been recognized nationally as a 2024 Digital Awards winner by PRNEWS and a Halo Award finalist by Engage for Good for two campaigns aimed at bettering outcomes for military service members, veterans, and their families.  

Operation Homefront was named a 2024 PRNEWS Digital Awards winner in the Fundraising Campaign category for its 11 Days of Impact campaign coinciding with Veterans Day, which was designed to ensure that military families, who have given so much on behalf of all of us, are supported in their own time of need. The campaign raised awareness about Operation Homefront resources and programs that support military families, celebrated the organization’s corporate partners, and raised nearly $900,000 during the timeframe. PRNEWS is a leader in the communication industry for education, inspiration and recognition, and each year, their distinguished awards program recognizes the most innovative and industry-altering digital communicators and campaigns. 

In addition, Walmart’s Spark Good Round Up campaign with Operation Homefront was a finalist for Best Consumer Donation Initiative of Engage for Good’s annual Halo Awards. That effort garnered $3.2 million dollars for Operation Homefront, as Walmart matched customer donations 2:1 when customers donated to Operation Homefront at checkout on Walmart.com. The campaign ran October 23 through November 30 of last year. Engage for Good empowers corporate and nonprofit professionals to create mutually beneficial social impact partnerships and their Halo Awards are the highest recognition for outstanding corporate social impact initiatives that intertwine their resources to have a measurable impact on the cause and the business.  

“We are immensely proud to be listed among so many other innovative and influential companies and organizations successfully engaging with audiences to increase awareness of their products and priorities,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray, CEO of Operation Homefront. “This recognition by PRNEWS and Engage for Good speaks to the unwavering commitment of our Operation Homefront team and the value of our partnerships. Together, we’re affecting real change for the very special and deserving community we serve: our nation’s military families,”  

Operation Homefront’s mission is carried out through a variety of impactful relief and recurring family support programs and resources. To learn more, visit www.OperationHomefront.org.
