Morningstar Mini-Storage Hosts Backpack Brigade


Morningstar Mini-Storage of Fayetteville, N.C., hosted Operation Homefront's Backpack Brigade, a school-supply giveaway for military families, on Aug. 14.
Operation Homefront is a national non-profit organization providing support to families of active-duty servicemembers. The annual Backpack Brigade, hosted by the organization’s 30 chapters, collects and distributes backpacks, notebooks, pens, markers, calculators and other supplies to families in need. This year, more than 15,000 stuffed backpacks will be distributed.  
Morningstar facility manager Chris Wyatt donated a self-storage unit to the group and hosted the local event, providing refreshments, face painting, Morningstar pencils and balloons, and free roller-skating passes for the rink next door. By 10 a.m., more than 100 people stood in line to receive their supplies. A news report about the event was aired on local TV station News 14, and a write-up was published in a local newspaper. Wyatt said he has already rented six units as a direct result of the event exposure.
