Friends and Neighbors

If you want to get your friends and neighbors involved: 

  • Host a backyard barbeque and ask your neighbors to participate for a small donation.  Ask for volunteers to host the next barbeque/happy hour and keep the party moving around the neighborhood for a great cause during the summer months!
  • Host a neighborhood garage sale with the proceeds going to the USO.  Clean out those closets while helping our troops!
  • Ask your local dry cleaners/restaurant/gas station/hair salon to give a percentage of proceeds for a certain time period to the USO—and let all of your neighbors know so they can go and support the local establishment as well as the USO!
  • Ask your local hair salon to host a cut-a-thon for the troops on their slow day.  Then ask your neighbors to promote the cut-a-thon to all of their friends. 
  • Host a neighborhood volleyball match, ping pong tournament, croquet set, etc. and charge an entry fee, an amount for an extra swing/point, etc.  Give prizes for the best team spirit, the team that raises the most money, the team that has the best song, etc!
  • Host an at home poker night and split the proceeds.
  • If you have an anniversary or special birthday, host a party but in lieu of gifts, ask people to make a donation to the USO. 
  • Keep neighborhood swear jars; don’t want to my chore jars, etc.
