Last week, volunteers gathered at Fort Belvoir, VA and Fort Meade, MD to distribute gifts for the children of junior enlisted service members. Project USO Elf allows American citizens to provide support to military children in need during the holidays by selecting and providing gifts from their personal wish lists.Through the generous gifts of our donors, USO-Metro was able to fulfill the wishlists of over 600 families, totaling to over 1,300 military children!
A very special thank you you to all of our volunteers & donors that have made countless holiday wishes come true this year, in addition to our wonderful program sponsors that made Project USO Elf possible: BAE Systems, Inc., General Dynamics Information Technology, Orbital ATK, Planet Technologies Official Site, and SAIC - Science Applications International Corporation.
Consider partnering with USO-Metro to brighten the lives of those who serve and their families all year long. Visit usometro.org/donate to learn more.
