The Charlotte, North Carolina-based franchising group donated $10,000 to help sponsor this year’s recipients and encourages its franchise owners to donate and support the program


HomeFront Brands, a property service franchise platform comprising five emerging brands, announced today that it has partnered with Operation Homefront to sponsor the program’s Military Child of the Year Award®, and congratulates the seven winners of this year’s awards.

HomeFront Brands donated $10,000 to the annual awards program, which recognizes outstanding young people for their scholarship, volunteerism, leadership, extracurricular involvement and other criteria while facing the challenges of military life. Each recipient represents a branch of the United States armed services. The award winners receive $10,000 each, a laptop computer and other donated gifts.

“HomeFront Brands has always had a mission to support our veterans and their families,” said HomeFront Brands Chief Marketing Officer Carie Beeman. “We are passionate about helping veterans transition to civilian life, and we have been lucky to welcome many veterans as part of our extended franchise family. When we heard about Operation Homefront’s Military Child of the Year, we recognized that our core values of Community, Accountability, Respect, Excellence and Service (C.A.R.E.S.) aligned well with their program. And, while our similar names are just a coincidence, the partnership is a perfect match.”

Beeman and HomeFront Brands’ Chief Legal Counsel John Haraldson served as part of the judging panel to select the award winners. The 2024 winners were flown to Washington, D.C. earlier this month to attend a gala honoring their awards. Winners and their represented branches are:

  • Isabella Arrieta, 17, U.S. Marine Corps
  • Allison Candelario, 18, U.S. Army
  • Lindsay Carstairs, 18, U.S. Navy
  • Caleb Hatch, 19, U.S. National Guard
  • Noelani Martinez, 16, U.S. Air Force
  • Charlotte Tama, 18, U.S. Coast Guard
  • Taylor Walsh, 18, U.S. Space Force
