BENEFITING: The USO
EVENT DATE: Nov 12, 2015
There are many Troops who are away from home defending our country and way of life. Their loved ones are left behind to take care of the home and children. Their pay is low but the troops are always willing to go and give their all. While at home, their families may struggle to meet the bare minimum for daily life.
We would like to show our appreciation to the wives, husbands, and children of the the troops by giving them an appreciation gift basket as a token of our affection for their sacrifice while their loved one is defending our country. Baskets may be filled with books, t-shirts, socks, scarves, gloves, vouchers, body care products, snacks, and other goodies.
One year, there were no more baskets left to fill, so apples were bought and neatly put into a holiday bag with vouchers for a restaurant and movie show. Later, the father found Sally to thank her because it was the first time in a long time that the father could take his kids out to eat and then to a show. Such a simple gesture meant so much.
Your help would ensure that families would be able to enjoy a thank you and show of appreciation.
