PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Organizations around Portland are partnering to help out veterans and military families this week.

The Operation Homefront organization regularly serves military families in need with rent, car payments, and more.

They have teamed up with Walmart and the Portland Police Bureau's Sunshine Division to donate more than 1,000 food boxes to families.

On Wednesday, volunteers from all three organizations packed the boxes.

Walmart recently gave the Sunshine Division a $31,000 grant which will help expand veteran assistance programs.

On Friday, the day before Armed Forces Day, they will be donating the food boxes to families across the area.
