Military family given free groceries for a year

EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

A military family in Eugene got an enormous surprise before the start of the Oregon Ducks game on Saturday.

The Slay family thought they were just there to watch the Ducks take on the USC Trojans, but the family was given free groceries for a year.

During the first quarter of the Duck game, an Albertsons employee made three passes at a target, each one worth $1,000 in groceries for the family.

In total, the family was given roughly $16,500 in free groceries.

The free groceries were thanks to a partnership between prepared meat brand Eckrich, Operation Homefront, and Albertsons.

Operation Homefront is an organization that helps provide support for military families.

U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Scott Slay has served 4 years in the military, and completed two deployments to Iraq.
