2017 "Operation Homefront" Fundraising Campaign

A few years ago we started the tradition of supporting a charity at the TCCN Annual Meeting. This year in recognition of the courageous service our speaker John Kriesel and all active/former military service members have given to our country, the TCCN Board has chosen to support Operation Homefront.

"Operation Homefront builds strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive – not simply struggle to get by – in the communities that they have worked so hard to protect."

Please consider joining TCCN in supporting this mission. There are 3 ways you can contribute:

  • Donate online prior to the annual meeting.  Please enter "TCCN" in the form comments.
  • Fill out and mail in this form.  Please enter "TCCN" on the form.
  • Bring cash or check to the annual meeting.

To encourage your participation, TCCN will donate $2 for every member who gives during this campaign, through December 1st, 2017.
