Believe it or not, the holidays are just around the corner! Our team of USO-Metro elves have been working hard behind the scenes to make this holiday season merry and bright for our local military families, and we need your help! We have compiled a list of four ways that you can give back to those that serve this holiday season. Join us in thanking our military and their families for their dedicated service to our nation during the holiday season!
1. Help bring holiday cheer to a military family’s tree
Donate to our holiday wishlist!
Active duty military members and their families will have the opportunity to visit a tree farm where they will be able to pick and cut their own tree! In addition to receiving a tree and participating in festive activities, USO-Metro hopes to provide each family with a gift bag filled with tree trimmings and holiday cheer! Help us fill our military families’ trees with cheer by donating through our holiday wishlist. Please place your order by Wednesday, November 14, 2018!
2. Donate to our Turkeys For Troops Telethon
