Supporting Military Families through Operation Homefront

CVS Health has joined forces with Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that provides short- and long-term support to support military parents, through the Star Spangled Babies baby shower program. The program helps build morale by providing baby showers to service members and their growing families.

In September 2016, CVS Health sponsored the program in San Antonio, Texas. About a dozen CVS Health colleagues helped set up the baby shower and welcomed attendees. At the event, new and expecting parents received early childhood education tips and a CVS Health Critical Baby Care Bag, which was packed full of essential products every family needs. The program also provided the opportunity to connect and network with fellow military parents.

Through this new partnership, CVS Health will also provide welcome home baskets that include essential household items to families entering another one of Operation Homefront’s programs, Homes on the Homefront. This program provides mortgage-free homes and financial training to military families, putting them on the path to achieving the American Dream that they served to protect.

“Operation Homefront is extremely grateful for CVS Health’s unwavering commitment to our military families,” said Brig Gen (ret) John I. Pray, Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront. “Our shared focus on the health and well-being of those who do so much to serve all of us will help them truly thrive, not simply struggle to get by, in the communities they’ve worked so hard to protect.”
