About the Campaign

Your donation will support USO-Metro programs such as Turkeys for Troops, a program providing local active-duty junior-enlisted (E-6 and below) military families in need with holiday food baskets!

Turkeys for Troops packages contain canned goods, stuffing and pie makings, cornbread mix and a gift card for a fresh turkey or ham. USO-Metro works directly with military leaders to identify families in the region that need our help the most. Join us in saying “Thanks!” to our local heroes. The suggested donation is $50.00 to cover the cost of one food basket.

Generous corporate partners will join volunteers on the phone bank to help reach our fundraising goal. Special thanks to our 2019 Turkeys for Troops Telethon Sponsors - we are grateful for your support!
