Get involved with USO-Metro this holiday season!

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 November 15, 2017!


2. Donate to our Turkeys For Troops Telethon

This holiday season, USO-Metro is honored to say “Thank You!” to local military families by providing holiday meal boxes through our Turkeys for Troops program! We are excited to invite you to tune in to our annual Turkeys for Troops telethon throughout the day on November 10, 2017 on WUSA9. Tune in or donate online here!


3. Organize a Toy Supply and/or Wrapping Supply drive

Email holidayprograms@usometro.org to arrange a drop-off!

USO-Metro is in need of toys, gifts, and wrapping supplies to support our local military families through Project USO Elf! To find out more information on what popular toys we are collecting and how to host your own toy or wrapping supply drive, please contact holidayprograms@usometro.org. Our drop-off deadline is December 11, 2017!


4. Purchase an engraved brick for the patriot, veteran or service member in your life

Purchase an engraved brick through Pave for the Brave!

Looking to get a jump start on your holiday shopping list? Look no further! We are excited to introduce an incredible opportunity for patriots to show their support for our nation’s military. Purchase a custom engraved brick for a loved one or family member to ensure that those who serve and their families can feel your support each and every day. The brick will be on display outside of USO-Metro’s USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir in Fort Belvoir, VA–the largest USO Center in the world. Supporting the military and leaving a lasting legacy (while checking an item off of your holiday shopping list!) has never been easier! Purchase your brick here!
