Turkeys for Troops

Registration Information Coming Soon!

This program is open to active duty service members E1 - E6.

Registration opens October 10, 2017, deadline to register is October 17, 2017.

USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore established Turkeys for Troops in 2008 to assist lower enlisted military families (E1 - E6) due to an increase in emergency food requests during the holiday season. Turkeys for Troops is a program that provides military families with traditional ingredients and supplies needed to prepare a Thanksgiving meal for a family of 4-6, including a gift card to purchase a fresh turkey from a local food store. (Note: Due to food safety handling regulations, the holiday meal baskets DO NOT include a turkey. A gift card to a local food store is given to purchase a fresh turkey instead.)

In 2016 we brought Turkeys for Troops to service members in a new way. We distributed meal boxes at two locations in a fun, festival environment filled with booths, games, refreshments, activities and prizes!

This program is made possible through generous donations from our corporate partners and funds raised during an annual telethon held on Veteran’s Day.

In order to receive your meal box registered participants must be present at the event.

Thank you to our 2017 sponsors: Leidos and Google
