AdvoCare Pledges $250,000 to the Troops Through Operation Homefront
FORT WORTH, TX, Feb. 4, 2010 – AdvoCare recently pledged $250,000 in 2010 to support
U.S. troops and their families through Operation Homefront, a military support nonprofit.
The commitment was announced during the Success School National Conference held
in Fort Worth, Texas.
The three-day event dedicated to sales training and recognition celebrated the AdvoCare
products, business opportunity, and vision for the future. More than 3,200 Independent
Distributors were in attendance. The closing session culminated with the announcement
of the Operation Homefront Platinum Level Sponsorship.

assistance for our troops, the families they leave behind and for wounded warriors
when they return home. A national nonprofit, Operation Homefront leads more than
4,500 volunteers in 30 chapters nationwide, and has met more than 200,000 needs
since 2002. A four-star rated charity by watchdog Charity Navigator, nationally,
$.92 of every dollar donated to Operation Homefront goes to programs.

“Operation Homefront’s mission thrives on helping those who so selflessly defend
our nation. We are grateful for the selfless courage of these men and women, and
this is just one way we, as a company can give back and show our support,” says
This donation means a lot to the troops. “The price of peace is paid by the entire
military family,” says Operation Homefront’s CEO Jim Knotts. “Especially during
deployments, the families back home face unique challenges specific to military
life. The support of companies like AdvoCare means the world to them. It helps them
overcome challenges, and reminds them of the support among the American people they
