  • $24 Challenge for Operation Come Home, February 2022
    Many of us think nothing of spending $24 for a bottle of wine or a steak, but that's what the average OPeration Come Home client has to spend on groceries every week after their bills are paid. For one week, Knifewear staff tried to feed themselves on just $24 to raise donations, which were matched by the Knifewear Foundation.
