Operation Homefront and Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR) have joined forces this holiday season to collect gifts for thousands of military children across the country. The effort will officially kick-off on Saturday, November 14th at the Dollar Tree store located at 7651 Arundel Mills Boulevard.

Last year, Dollar Tree patrons nationwide donated an estimated $5.8 million in toys; this year's goal is $6 million. The toys will be donated by customers of the more than 3,800 Dollar Tree stores nationwide, including the more than 80 locations in Maryland.

The toy drive comes at a time when Operation Homefront, a non-profit that helps military families in need and provides support to our nation's wounded warriors, has seen an increase for requests for financial assistance and 82 percent increase in requests for food assistance over last year.

Dollar Tree will collect items in its stores November 15 - December 15.
