Service is the focus of everything we do here at Navy Federal. From providing members with the best possible customer experience to serving the communities where our members live, our mission is to serve.

This past August, we teamed up with Operation Homefront to give back to one of our newest branch communities, Houston. With the new school year right around the corner, what better way to give back to the Houston military community than with a back-to-school supply drive?

Operation: Prep the Packs

From August 13 until August 17, our 5 Houston branches collected backpacks and school supplies for Operation: Prep the Packs. We collected 225 backpacks. This was the perfect amount for the 200 families who registered for the program.

Mission: Backpack Block Party

On August 18, we hosted Mission: Backpack Block Party at our branch in Katy. Volunteers from Operation Homefront and Navy Federal team members spent the morning stuffing the collected backpacks with school supplies. That afternoon, military families came by the branch to pick up their stuffed packs and to enjoy a delicious lunch provided by Chick-fil-A®.

Thanks to everyone who donated backpacks and supplies for the local military children. Because of your generosity, 200 kids were able to start the new school year with tons of great supplies!
