In partnership with national nonprofit, Operation Homefront, Pillsbury welcomed its inaugural military family into a recently constructed transitional home for veterans, ensuring the family can spend Thanksgiving in their new home. This is the first of three transitional homes for veterans that Pillsbury has pledged in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area and is the second home the brand has donated through Operation Homefront since 2020. Each home will enable Operation Homefront to provide rent-free housing to multiple military families over the next 15-20 years as they transition back to civilian life.

Dallas-native and Navy Veteran, Max Best, his wife and his two young children are the first occupants of the transitional home in the Newberry Point community of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro. Best, a Petty Officer Second Class in the U.S. Navy, served in the military for six years, including a 2019 deployment to South Asia. Best and his family decided it was time to end his service with the military when his wife became pregnant with their son and the 14-to-16-hour days required from his master-at-arms duties were no longer feasible for the family. While living in the transitional home, the Best family’s goal is to improve their credit, save money and work to become homeowners themselves.
