Mission: Mail Call - Updates for May 2021

UPDATES FROM THE FIELD

MilFam Market


Every month at each of our centers on military installations, USO-Metro is proud to host MilFam Markets in partnership with the Maryland Food Bank & the Capital Area Food Bank. This program provides fresh produce and nonperishable goods free of charge to active duty military families. Due to financial setbacks and the high cost of living in the National Capital Region, USO-Metro regularly receives requests from service members for food support. The program is prioritized to assist enlisted service members and their families, then all military ranks pending availability.

With the support of sponsors Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Intelligence & Space in 2021, USO-Metro aims to serve over 12,000 service members and their families. Nothing lifts the spirits like a vehicle full of military children driving thru to pick up their package of food with smiles on their faces! Sponsorship opportunities still available.
