Blues Give Assist to Operation Homefront
Several members of the Blues front office staff helped sort and take inventory of donations to Operations Homefront on Wednesday, Oct. 31.


FENTON - Several members of the Blues front office volunteered to help sort donations at Operation Homefront on Wednesday. For several hours, the group helped the non-profit organization sort and take inventory of thousands of donated items.

“It’s important that we keep our staff active in the community, especially right now,” said Randy Girsch, the Blues’ Director of Community Relations. “We intend to keep giving back through community outreach activities like this one in the coming weeks.”

Operation Homefront was established in 2002 and provides assistance to members of the military and their families before, during and after deployment.

“If a car breaks down or a roof leaks or the plumbing backs up or something goes wrong and a service member can’t afford to repair it, we take care of it,” said Jon Jerome, the Chapter President for Operation Homefront Missouri. “We have a staff of three, so volunteers are what makes it happen.”

Blues employees, alongside TV play-by-play broadcaster John Kelly, worked in Operation Homefront’s 3,200-square foot warehouse in Fenton on Wednesday morning. Throughout recent years, the Blues have also supported Operation Homefront with their Salute to Military Nights, where the team collects monetary donations and care package items to be sent to troops overseas.

“(The Blues) have been outstanding. Just amazing throughout the years, not only with getting our service members and their families out to the games, but by helping us out with fundraising and helping with care package items,” Jerome said. “Blues fans are amazing. When they’re asked, the outpouring of support is unbelievable.”

Jerome added that the best part of the job is knowing that he’s made an impact.

“The families that we meet, the ones that we impact, it’s humbling to know that some of the struggles military families are going through, that just helping them…we just know we’ve done good things.”
