Project USO Elf

Project USO Elf

Project USO Elf is a wish list matching program that pairs our youngest patriots ages 1-15 with generous community and corporate donors to make their holiday dreams come true! Children will receive age appropriate gifts from their wish list selected by their paired donor that will equate to NO MORE than $50.

EACH CHILD MUST BE INDIVIDUALLY REGISTERED for this event. Please fill out the registration form for EACH child to be entered in the lottery.

The number of children registered does not affect your chances of being chosen in the lottery. Also DO NOT enter each child in more than once, this will not help your chances in the lottery

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. The deadline to register is November 1, 2020 at 12:00pm ET. Winners will be notified by the first week in November.

If you are not selected in the lottery, you will automatically be added to the waitlist.

This program is available to active duty service members, E-1 to E-6, stationed in the DMV only. Command referral may be accepted for higher ranks with special conditions.
