Breitbart News has reported that Popeye the Sea Dog has been operating a children’s home operation in the United States.
The Popeye Operation Homefield, as it’s called, is an international operation that has been funded by the United Kingdom’s Government’s National Health Service.
The operation’s website explains that the mission is to “help our young people to develop the values, skills and self-confidence that are essential to succeed in life, and to help our elders to develop their own.”
The Popeyes aim to “give them a healthy, fulfilling and safe environment for them to explore, develop and be creative.”
Popeye The Sea Dog is currently operating in California, Washington D.C., and the Carolinas, and aims to have its operations operating in the U.S. by 2020.
The organization’s founder, Stephen Williams, says the goal is to provide “a safe, welcoming, fun and rewarding environment where children can be challenged, learn and thrive in a safe and caring environment.”
Popeyes’ operations have been featured in several media outlets including the BBC, the BBC News Channel, the American Express Home and the BBC World Service.
Popeye also recently hosted the Popeye Live podcast.
The “Operation Homefront” website states that Popeyes is seeking volunteers to assist with the operation and its “Operation Smile” program.
The website states: We need you to join us and help us in our mission to help children and young people develop their confidence, develop self-esteem and make a positive impact on the world.
We need your help, too!
There are many resources available online for people to help with the Popeyes operation.
The US Government’s Department of Health and Human Services website, however, states that “[t]he Popeye program is funded by [the] National Health Services and has not been officially certified by the Department.”
