USO's season of giving campaign | Events
The USO is in the midst of their Season of Giving Campaign.
The campaign kicked off last week with several events hosted by the USO. We sponsored three Christmas events for military families (KAFB annual Holiday in the Park, NCBC Gulfport annual tree lighting ceremony, and Air National Guard family Christmas celebration.)
Here are some ways that small donations for you can help the USO through this campaign:
$25 can provide a USO Care Package for a deployed service members
- $50 can help provide phone cards, books and postage for United Through Reading, or other opportunities for troops to stay connected to their families
- $100 can help provide provide postage for 10 families to receive cuddly bears from the deployed parent
- $1,000 can provide free food, snacks, and beverages to over 5,000 troops that will visit our USO Centers this holiday season as they are mobilizing for a deployment away from their family this holiday or are in transit for their holiday leave.
Donations can be made at www.uso.org/donategulfcoast or by calling 1-877-USO-GIVE (1-877-876-4483) Or by mailing checks payable to USO Gulf Coast to 14035Q Airport Rd Gulfport, MS 39503
