UPDATES FROM THE FIELD
Our 2021 Mobile USO Program, presented by Boeing, has been busy bringing our USO-Metro programming directly to our military community. Led by Kyle Barr and Amanda Hatfield, our fleet of mobile vehicles serves the National Capital Region’s 30+ remote military locations without a USO Center facility. Examples of these installations includes PAX River, Aberdeen, 8th & I, Coast Guard Yard, Indian Head, and Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling.
Whether it is a hotdog cookout, unit support, or hosting an outdoor movie night, our mobile operations team brings the energy and excitement. USO-Metro looks forward to warmer weather and more socially distanced events in the months ahead, like our MLB Opening Day celebration at Dahlgren Naval Base on April 12th. Be on the lookout for our team traveling across the region this spring and please give them a supportive HONK!
Round Up for the Troops
It’s that time of year again when our wonderful partners at Harris Teeter kick off their annual round up campaign. From April 7th to June 15th, show your support of our military service members and their families by rounding up to the nearest dollar at checkout in all Harris Teeter stores. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to USO programs and services. You can even ask to round up while shopping online!
If you have ideas for similar third party fundraising or employee giving campaigns, we want to partner with you! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or your account manager to learn how we can get involved as your campaign beneficiary.
DC Polo Society
Mark your calendars for a unique opportunity to celebrate our military community with friends and family at one of DC Polo Society’s upcoming matches. As a member club of the United States Polo Association, DC Polo Society offers unforgettable experiences to veteran polo fans and newcomers alike at the Congressional Polo Club in Poolesville, MD.
USO-Metro has partnered with the DC Polo Society as their charity beneficiary for the 2021 season. At each of their matches, held on the second Sunday of the month, we will receive a portion of all ticket proceeds. To learn how you can purchase tickets, please visit https://dcpolo2021.eventbrite.com. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming match.
